The project SeNeReKo has two objectives:
- Gain insights about processes of interreligious exchange from historical sources, and
- apply recent computational text analysis techniques.
The digitalization of historical sources created new possibilities for storing and processing them. But the analytical potential is still far from being fully utilized. SeNeReKo is a playing ground for the adaption and development of new methods, bringing together information technology, computer linguistics, and the humanities. Our aim are only answers to the research questions at hand, but also insights for interdisciplinary research and best practices for future projects.
SeNeReKo is a joint research project of the Center for Religious Studies (CERES) at the Ruhr-University Bochum and the Trier Center for Digital Humanities (TCDH). It is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
