Information Infrastructure Project

Corpora in Motion: Digital Exploitation of Epistemic Transfer in Premodern Cultures

The project develops methods and practices for the digital exploitation and visualization of epistemic changes within long-term processes of premodern corpora using travelling manuscripts, codices, prints, albums and library inventories. The “Episteme Research Data Repository” will serve as a basis for the preservation of the digital data objects including their descriptive metadata of all projects of the SFB and as a platform for the exploitation tools. Together with the project GP01 the close cooperation between the humanities and applied computer science will be established. Thus the SFB-project will serve as a pilot for DARIAH-DE for the implementation of complex institutional cooperation and sustainability.
