The goal of the project is to give students a perspective for future research and their future career. The educational project The Digital Archive Stuttgart at the University of Stuttgart is one of 23 projects funded by Welcome to Scientific Research with a maximum of 300,000 Euro.

What is The Digital Archive Stuttgart?

The Digital Archive Stuttgart is an educational project funded by the project Welcome to Scientific Research. The project educates students of the first semesters for a future where handling large and complex amounts of digitized texts and pictures is crucial for a professional qualification and a successful career. The project relies on team work, intensive supervision, and leading the students to answering current research questions. The educational project builds on an existing educational and research cooperation between the German Literature Archive Marbach and the Institute for Literary Studies, Modern German Literature at the University of Stuttgart. Thereby, new cooperations with the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Information Technologies will be established.

The project will offer lectures and tutorials which will allow students to learn project based research with archives, give an insight into different occupational areas, and communicating the necessary team spirit. In order to achieve these goals based on current scientific research and further advance research in the sense of Digital Humanities, the lectures will be extended by an information processing component. This will make the lecture appealing to students of the Faculty of Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and Information Technologies, which will work in teams together with students from the humanities. Thereby, the gap between these subjects will be closed.

The project is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research, and Art Baden-Württemberg
