The Rhine-Main universities bundle and network research in the digital humanities, cultural and social sciences in the Rhine-Main region. A profile renowned throughout Germany and internationally in the emerging research field of Digital Humanities will not only benefit the students of the participating universities, but also the art and cultural institutions in the region. In the foreground is not a service provision by computer science for humanities or social science research projects, but rather the equal cooperation in carefully selected project contexts. An example is the automatic analysis of the use of metaphor in scientific language.
The cooperation is supported by the Centre for the Digital Foundation of Research in the Humanities, Social, and Educational Sciences (CEDIFOR) of the TU Darmstadt and the Goethe University Frankfurt as well as by the Mainz Centre for Digitality in the Humanities and Cultural Studies (mainzed).
