QuaDramA: Tracking Character Knowledge (Q:TRACK)
I’m pleased to announce that QuaDramA, the research project by Marcus Willand and myself, will receive additional funding soon. In this extension called Q:TRACK, we will investigate knowledge about social relations in drama, focusing on family relations. The core idea is to track the distribution and dissemination of social knowledge by detecting the knowledge characters have, acquire and share during the course of dramatic action. In order to accomplish this, Q:TRACK combines methods from computational linguistics and digital humanities with theoretical and historical expertise of literary studies. The project builds on the research we have done in QuaDramA so far.

It’s now official: On September 1st, I’ll join the Institute for Digital Humanities at the University of Cologne. At the institute, I’ll be an interim professor for linguistic information processing (“Sprachliche Informationsverarbeitung”). I’m looking forward to the new colleagues, students, institute, and city!
