This blog started as a kind of personal notebook dealing with theoretical questions and practical problems while conceiving and realizing the digital edition Letters and Texts. Intellectual Berlin around 1800. The digital edition had a first development phase between 2010 and 2016. It was then hosted, together with the editorial team, at the institute of German Literature in the Humboldt-University in Berlin, and funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft as a part of the Emmy Noether program.
While the edition remained provisorily hosted at the Trier Center for Digital Humanities, a new development phase started in 2019 in the context of the DAHN project, funded by the French Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. In this second development phase, the digital edition platform is conceived so as to be able to host additional corpora and to facilitate automatized reuse of the data.
Recent blogposts are written either by the DAHN project team (especially from the Inria-Paris ALMAnaCH team), or by guest authors addressing a variety of Digital Humanities-related topics.
Other blogposts may deal with adjacent research projects, the environmental footprint of research, specifically Digital Humanities research, or the organization of the 2023 Digital Humanities Conference in Graz (co-chaired by Anne Baillot and Toma Tasovac).
