Research Summary

 From 2013 to 2016 I have been working on the  HERA funded  digital humanities project entitled “Asymmetrical Encounters: E-Humanity Approaches to Reference Cultures in Europe, 1815-1992" (ASYMENC).
The project aimed to contribute to our understanding of the role of transnational cultures in Europe over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth century by studying how public debates and ideas “travelled” between countries such as Germany, Britain, France and the Low Countries. It explored these questions by analyzing large-scale digitized newspaper collections with textual analysis tools.  My research explored the depiction of metropolitan centers and cities and compared discussions around urban themes and city life in European newspapers and journals throughout the twentieth century.
