Research Network Digital Humanities

The Research Network Digital Humanities aims to strengthen collaborative methods of research and the integration of students in research (research-based learning) in the area of Digital Humanities. The network includes the projects of the Research Navigator, an initiative of the History Department (Prof. Dr. Susanna Burghartz, Prof. Dr. Martin Lengwiler) and the Institute for European Global Studies in Basel (Prof. Dr. Madeleine Herren-Oesch) in cooperation with the Digital Humanities Lab.

At the Institute for European Global Studies, one of the main research fields of the “research navigator” concerns the project Global Information at a Glance: Power, Law, and Commerce through the Lens of Asia Directories.
