Research platforms

Today a large amount of research within the humanities and theology is conducted in academic environments outside of traditional disciplinary and organisational units. The Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology are promoting the establishing and development of long-term interdisciplinary collaborations by giving monetary support to five research platforms chosen by an external expert jury.

A platform, which collects researchers from different historical disciplines at the Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology – in collaboration with the Humanities Lab and the University Library – in order to support the development of new research projects within the field of digital history.
