Mining and Modeling Text. Interdisziplinäre Anwendungen, informatorische Weiterentwicklung, rechtliche Perspektiven (MiMoText; PI)

  • This project is concerned with automatically extracting, structuring and interlinking relevant information from primary sources (notably literary texts such as novels) as well as from scholarly publications (such as literary histories), as well as with using the resulting resources for answering research questions in the Humanities.
  • The project is hosted at the Trier Center for Digital Humanities (TCDH) at the University of Trier. It is funded through the “Research Initiative” of the Rhineland-Palatinate government from July 2019 to June 2022.
  • The speaker of the project is Prof. Dr. Christof Schöch, the substitute speaker is Prof. Dr. Claudine Moulin.
