This blog provides some information about my work, academic activities, and research.

At the moment I coordinate the BMBF-funded project “Elaboration of a concept for a European Academies Internet Gateway for the Social Sciences and Humanities (AGATE)” for the Union der deutschen Akademien der Wissenschaften (Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities) at the Office Berlin. I am on the advisory board of Goettingen Dialog in Digital Humanities and member of the AG Datenzentren of the DHd (Digital Humanities im deutschsprachigen Raum).

Before, I worked as researcher at the Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen for the project Humanities Data Centre (HDC) and at the Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek (SUB) for the Göttingen eResearch Alliance. The HDC-project, with partners from Göttingen and Berlin, seeks to evaluate and establish the prerequisites to build a data centre that fulfills the needs of researchers in the humanities and provides long term storage, availability and reuse of humanities data. The Göttingen eResearch Alliance was founded to offer a single point of contact for scientists and scholars on the Göttingen Campus for information, personal advice and support for key issues related to digital research through all phases of the research life cycle.

I have studied Dutch and English Philology (MA) and Editorial Studies (M.A.) at Freie Universität Berlin. From 2008 until 2012 I was employed as a BOF-doctoral researcher at Ghent University (Belgium). My Ph.D.-project was mainly supervised by Youri Desplenter (Ghent University), Joris Reynaerd (Ghent University), and Dirk Coigneau (Ghent University), as well as by Remco Sleiderink (HU Brussel) and Kees Schepers (University of Antwerp). I received my Ph.D. for my thesis “‘Dit es dinde van goede en quade’: Eschatologie bei den Brabanter Autoren Jan van Boendale, Lodewijk van Velthem und Jan van Leeuwen (14. Jh.)”, in which I studied eschatology in 14th century Dutch literature in its European perspective, in October 2012. For this study I received the 2013 Mgr. C. de Clercqprijs of the Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België voor Wetenschappen en Kunsten (Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts) for an outstanding work in the field ‘History of Religions of Flanders’.

I am still highly interested in medieval Dutch literature, more specifically eschatology in the vernacular in the 14th century, historiography, and the relationship between medieval Dutch and German writings. In the future I would love to do an editorial project, for example a digital edition of the German transmission of the ‘Vierde Partie’ of the ‘Spiegel Historiael’, or study more specifically vernacular prophecy in the medieval Low countries.
