DH Lab

The DH Lab bundles the development of digital methods and the activities of digitally supported research on European history. As a cross-sectional unit, the DH Lab seeks to advance the work of the research areas at the IEG through support of source criticism, heuristics and analyses with digital tools and procedures. As »embedded digital humanists«, the members of the DH Lab conduct their own research projects within the framework of the IEG research programme, design new procedures and methods towards the formal modelling of historical research questions and support the transfer of digital procedures in the fellowship program.

The DH Lab coordinates the development and expansion of digital research infrastructures operated or used by the IEG and manages the digital research collections and services offered by IEG digital. By means of digital tools, common corpora of sources and cooperative forms of work, the potential of new questions and interdisciplinary collaboration is tapped. The DH Lab supports the continuous management of digital research data in the ongoing research process and its integration into Open Access publications. Within the framework of the Lab, the IEG also actively deals with the concepts of »Open Science« and »Public Humanities«.

Matching the networked, decentralized and cooperative structures of digital research, the DH Lab maintains a broad network and builds on cooperation with many partners. The collaboration with networks and institutions takes place at regional, national and European level as well as in institutional or bilateral contexts.
