Research Expertise

Description

My research career has been diverse and highly transdisciplinary, balancing discovery research with applied and service-based work promoting cultural change in the research ecosystem around me. It has moved through roughly three phases: First, in the time of my doctoral training and just after, I was focussed on basic research in the field of German/Austrian literature and culture. Although far from my current work, my publications from this time continue to be used, with two works still being cited in 2018 and 2019. My increasing interest in the impact of technology on my discipline and the humanities in general gradually eclipsed this discipline-specific work, however. Although I spent much of my career in this phase outside of wholly academic positions, this focus was nonetheless realised in the form of a number of successful, large-scale, funded research projects, including CENDARI (FP7), Europeana Cloud (FP7), PARTHENOS (H2020), and PROVIDE DH (CHIST-ERA). This body of research explores how we support the 'digital turn' for humanists, respecting their strong tradition of qualitative methods and cultural sources. It is for this work I am best known, and which led to my appointment as President of the Board of Directors of the DARIAH ERIC. Currently, however, I am finding very fruitful ground in the exploration of how understanding the intersection of technology with the study of the humanities provides new insight into social challenges, in particular as pertains to the use of information and communication technologies. This was the focus of the SPECTRESS Network (FP7) and the KPLEX project (H2020), as well as a number of initiatives currently in application stage. This career path has enabled me to publish across a broad spectrum of fields, ranging from literature and history to digital humanities, to scholarly communications, library science, computer science and science and technology studies, among others.
