ENDE

mainzed, Mainz’s centre for digitality in the humanities, is an open network of knowledge organisations serving as an umbrella organisation for those whose goal it is to promote and support digital research.

Our key mission is to support the creation of an infrastructure and the transformation of the humanities in the light of the digital age. Mainzed works locally and thinks globally: we set out from concrete problems, but we tie in with developments from the overarching field of digital humanities on an international scale.
Each year, all of mainzed's activities are presented in the annual report (2015-2016, 2016-2017) available by July 31st.

mainzed targets researchers at all levels with its offering of a common, persistent platform facilitating exchange, the development of projects and the expansions of the research foci pursued in Mainz. The network is strengthened by organising and realising public events together. We communicate our events through twitter.

Studiengang

A specific Masters Program is a prerequisite for a long-term establishment of digitality in the humanities and cultural studies in Mainz.
To accomplish this, mainzed took the leading role in designing and accrediting a new study program called »Digital methodology in the humanities and cultural studies«, which will be jointly offered by two universities in Mainz.
For more information, please visit the corresponding pages for Johannes Gutenberg-Universität and Hochschule Mainz.

Partners

mainzed is a collaboration of six partners in research and teaching. With our forces joint, we aim at evolving our competences in the area of digital methods in the humanities.
Besides a research infrastructure, our spectrum spans digital methods in the area of spatial humanities, natural language processing, linguistics, digital edition, music, multimedia and web technologies for a semantic web.
