After my first master’s degree in Digital Humanities I started working in digital research projects straight away. During the last couple of years, I was not only involved in small- and large-scale projects in- and outside of academia, I also got to know different kinds of projects, teams and working environments. This allowed me to gain deep insights in the areas of Digital and Public Humanities, Digital Cultural Heritage, Science Communication as well as Culture and Project Management.
Up until now, I was involved in the following projects:
SFB 1288 „Practices of Comparing. Ordering and CHanging the World“
The SFB “Practices of Comparing” is exploring a new research paradigm by shifting attention from what is a seemingly invariant operation – the comparison – to the history and culture of a practice – doing comparisons. What do people do when they compare?
Subproject INF „Data Infrastructure and Digital Humanities“
Subproject INF is responsible for supervising all data- and information-related activities by providing a collaborative digital work and research environment for the whole SFB. By bringing together expertise in the fields of information infrastructure, research data management, and digital humanities, it contributes to establishing new research methods in the field of the humanities that will support research on practices of comparing.
NUCLEUS – RRI
NUCLEUS is a European Horizon 2020 project empowering universities in better responding to societal challenges with Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI). Over four years (Sep. 2015 – Aug. 2019), 24 partners from 15 countries will design, implement, and support action plans to embed RRI into the cultureand organisational structure of universities and research institutions.
city2science is a German company for science communication and strategic consulting. The office encourages strategic alliances between cities and research institutions and develops innovative formats of science communication. The office supports partners from science and economy, politics and society through comprehensive coordination and management services as well as in the development of national and international funding proposals.
Eusea – Executive office
Founded in 2001 in Vienna, Austria, the European Science Engagement Association, EUSEA, has evolved from a meeting-place for science festival organisers to a collaborative international community for public engagement practitioners. Today, Eusea encourages and supports innovative formats of science-society dialogues across Europe – ranging from Researchers’ Nights to Science Parliaments, from Science Cafés to Maker Faires, from public debates to local strategies uniting scientists with policy makers.
Science Night Ruhr is one of the youngest and largest science festivals in Germany. The event is designed as a regional, family-oriented Discovery Tour, leading thousands of visitors to various Hubs of Innovation in the Ruhr region – one of the most densely populated urban areas in Germany. Developed in a collaborative, interdisciplinary process with a premiere in October 2014, the concept of Science Night Ruhr invites early career scientists, professors and high-level experts, entrepreneurs and artists to turn the post-industrialized Ruhr Metropolis into a swirling Laboratory of Ideas.
Maker Faire Ruhr
Maker Faire is a platform for young scientists and designers, but also for citizens, entrepreneurs and the Do it Yourself Comunity, to present their projects to a broad public and to build networks with other Makers. The Maker Faire Ruhr in Dortmund invites Makers of all kinds to present their innovative projects and share new and inspiring ideas. At Maker Faire Ruhr you can discover exciting experiments surrounded by wooden typewriters, early televisions and manually driven printing machines. The setting of the DASA Working World Exhibition gives the Faire its particular atmosphere and invites to test many sciency projects yourself.
Center Music – Edition – Media
The Center Music – Edition – Media was launched by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in September 2014 as part of the funding program for the establishment of „eHumanities Centers“ and provided start-up funding of initial three years and another two years (until August 2019) to enable the transition to permanent operation. The objectives of the center are to promote the use of digital methods, to advise and support researchers from various disciplines, to implement the corresponding digital resources, and to further develop relevant tools. The special focus is on music, editions and media, that means in the field of non-textual or hybrid objects.
Freischütz Digital – Paradigmatic Implementation of an Authentic Digital Edition Concept
Weber’s Freischütz, as an exemplary pilot project following the draft of a concept derived from Wiering’s Multidimensional Model of authentically digital music editions, was to provide a proof of concept to demonstrate the potential of an innovative editorial technology and to deal with new issues associated with it. Six work packages focused on the work’s graphic, logical, and acoustic (or performative) domains, at the same time emphasizing a comprehensive and detailed data contextualization and the formalized linkage concepts required for this.
Complete Works of Carl Maria von Weber –
The WeGA (Carl-Maria-von-Weber-Gesamtausgabe) is a research project with the aim of presenting all compositions, letters, diaries and writings of the composer Carl Maria von Weber in a scholarly critical edition until the 200th anniversary of Weber’s death in 2026. The edition will include about 50 volumes of music including critical reports, 10 volumes of letters, about 8 volumes of diaries, 2 volumes of writings, a critical commentary and several volumes of documents. All parts of the text will first be published as a Digital Edition.
