Jun.-Prof. Ulrike Henny-Krahmer

Juniorprofessor for Digital Humanities




The junior professorship was awarded to the University of Rostock within the framework of the academy project Uwe Johnson-Werkausgabe of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW). The junior professorship represents the field of Digital Humanities both in research and teaching.

One focus of my work is on digital editions and text collections, especially with regard to information technology methods of data modeling (including text encoding), data management, and data visualization. In addition, I deal with methods of quantitative text and data analysis such as topic modeling, sentiment analysis, and general approaches of data mining and machine learning and the matter of how they can be usefully applied to research questions in the humanities. Another field of work in which I am active is the evaluation and sustainability of digital research in the humanities. This involves the question of how research results of the digital humanities can be evaluated appropriately, and also how their availability and re-usability can be guaranteed in the long term.

In addition to the methodologically oriented, interdisciplinary perspective, the junior professorship is particularly involved in Germanic and Romance literary studies. This is due, on the one hand, to the professorship's collaboration on the digital Uwe Johnson Works Edition (UJWA) and, on the other hand, to my professional background as a regional scholar of Latin American and Romance studies.
