Mainz Centre for Digitality

ENDE

mainzed, Mainz’s center 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.

mainzed is committed to working in three key areas:

We conduct research on the key questions of the humanities and on the cultural heritage from a digital perspective.

We develop study programmes for students and advanced training opportunities in digital methods primarily aimed at postgraduates and young researchers.

We support researchers in using digital methods for their research.

Annual report

We are excited to present our first annual report covering our activities since the foundation of mainzed in 2015. The report is available online as responsive web documentation..

Network

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.

Organisation

mainzed builds on existing structures of the partner institutions of which the network consists. The network is steered by an executive board, with an executive office at its side. The work of the executive level is complemented by a scientific advisory board consisting of members from the various partner institutions.
