On 14 December the crowdsourcing project CEMROL (Collecting Epistolary Metadata of the Republic of Letters) will be launched at the University Museum. Everyone interested in history and/or letters can participate in the CEMROL-project.
The project conducts research into the ideal of sharing knowledge within early modern scholarly networks in Europe by applying social network analysis and text mining techniques to the metadata and full-text data of large quantities of manuscript and printed letters from the period 1500-1800.
The launch is partly Dutch and partly English. More information is available in Dutch.
