Dr. Maret Nieländer

Maret Nieländer joined the GEI in July 2014 as a research fellow in the DIFI department. She coordinates the field of digital humanities at the GEI as well as the CLARIN-D discipline-specific working group on history that is led by the GEI. From 2015 to 2016 she also worked in a CLARIN-D project curating digitised textbooks at the Göttingen Centre for Digital Humanities.

Maret Nieländer studied cultural studies at the universities of Kiel, Oviedo and Frankfurt (Oder). After a stay at the Goethe-institute Madrid and a teaching assignment in Frankfurt (Oder) she worked as a research assistant on the project “The Dialogue of Cultures in the Andes” for the Transcultural Studies programme at the University of Heidelberg. She completed her doctoral thesis in 2013 in the faculty of history at the same university. It investigated the role of the Mercedarians in the emergence of colonial society in Central and South America as well as the internal changes to this religious order that were triggered by its transatlantic expansion.
