Activities

In order to bring the expertise and experience of film and media scholars, computer scientists as well as cultural heritage institutions in a fruitful dialogue, the research group organizes various events at Philipps-Universität Marburg and abroad. In addition to local and regional workshops, we intensify the collaborations with our international project partners on site.

The research group also works closely with the Marburg Center for Digital Culture and Infrastructure (MCDCI), the Digital Cinema-Hub (DiCi-Hub), a joint project between Philipps-Universität Marburg, Goethe-University Frankfurt, and Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz, the Consortium for Research Data on Material and Immaterial Cultural Heritage (NFDI4Culture), and the media studies repository media/rep/, among various projects at the Institute of Media Studies in Marburg, such as the DFG Research Network "New Directions in Film Historiography. Digital Tools and Methods in Film and Media Studies" (led by Dr. Sarah-Mai Dang).

This overview lists key activities of the project.
