Digital Humanities Hessen - Integrated Processing and Analysis of Text-based Corpora
The LOEWE Priority Program Digital Humanities aims at networking basic research in the humanities from the point of view of information science and text-technology. It integrates comprehensive resources located at two universities (Goethe University Frankfurt, TU Darmstadt) and at the Freie Deutsches Hochstift / Frankfurter Goethe Museum. In this way, the priority program provides a common information technological infrastructure for approaches to digital humanities. The central aim of the priority program is
(a) the development, testing and implementation of methods for the analysis and annotation of linguistic and iconographic data from various disciplines in the humanities, and
(b) the critical reflection of the impact of these methods and their output on the scientific disciplines involved.
