Gaining fresh ideas for independent research
"Germany was my first choice − after all, it is a leader in the field of digital humanities. The Trier Center for Digital Humanities gives me the opportunity to pursue my project of creating a digital edition of Giacomo Leopardi’s Zibaldone. The workshops have taught me how to use the technology, and the interdisciplinary environment has enriched my research. I exchange ideas with philologists, computer linguists and computer scientists, and this often gives me new ideas for my own work. Some of the collaboration will surely be long-term. Thanks to the International Office and Romance Studies, I also quickly found contacts outside the department."
