About me

I am a medievalist and textual scholar by training with a specialisation in Medieval Dutch Literature and active in medieval eschatology, historiography, and book and library history. I also contribute to projects and networks in digital preservation and digital arts and humanities and love singing Gospel and dancing Salsa.

In April 2017 I joined the PARTHENOS project for FH Potsdam (University of Applied Sciences) as Senior Researcher. I am especially involved in WP 7 “Skills, Professional Development and Advancement”. From 2016-2017 I coordinated 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 its Berlin Office in the BBAW. Before I came to Berlin, 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. In the context of both projects I was strongly involved in the general strategic development and especially in the development of services according to feedback from the community. I was also responsible for public relations, communication and outreach as well as for trainings and personal counselling on data management, open access and Digital Humanities.

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’.

My thesis has been published in 2016: U. Wuttke, Im Diesseits das Jenseits bereiten: Eschatologie, Laienbildung und Zeitkritik bei den mittelniederländischen Autoren Jan von Boendale, Lodewijk van Velthem und Jan van Leeuwen. Göttingen, 2016 (Print and Online Version), http://resolver.sub.uni-goettingen.de/purl?univerlag-isbn-978-3-86395-274-7.
