in the Humanities
and Cultural Studies
The Mainz Centre for Digitality in the Humanities and Cultural Studies, mainzed, is an open network pooling digital expertise at the scientific location Mainz.
mainzed is actively working in research, teaching and the transfer of knowledge. In doing so, it connects the regional network of competence to current research in the field of digital humanities. Each year, information on the activities of mainzed are provided within the annual report on 31 July 2015-2016, 2016-2017,2017-2018 You can find information, presentations and white papers of mainzed here
We conduct research on the key questions of the humanities and on the cultural heritage from a digital perspective.
We develop study programmes for students and advanced training opportunities in digital methods primarily aimed at postgraduates and young researchers.
We support researchers in using digital methods for their research.
mainzed offers a network of scientific exchange with regard to the development of projects and research foci for scientists of all qualification levels. The network is formed by organising and realising public events together. Information on our own events and projects are published via Mastodon in German. Alternatively, you can subscribe to the RSS-Feed or the Newsletter.

A specific Masters Program is a prerequisite for a long-term establishment of digitality in the humanities and cultural studies in Mainz. To accomplish this, mainzed took the leading role in designing and accrediting a new study program called »Digital methodology in the humanities and cultural studies«, which will be jointly offered by two universities in Mainz. For more information, please visit the corresponding pages for Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and University of Applied Sciences Mainz.
mainzed is a collaboration of six partners in research and teaching. With our forces joint, we aim at evolving our competences in the area of digital methods in the humanities. Besides a research infrastructure, our spectrum spans digital methods in the area of spatial humanities, natural language processing, linguistics, digital edition, music, multimedia and web technologies for a semantic web.
