Who we are

CREATE is interdisciplinary. Our researchers come from the fields of history, media studies, heritage studies, art history, book history, language and literature, information retrieval, archaeology, and data science. They look into, for instance, cinema culture, design industries, musical life, theatre programs, art markets, and the publishing business. And what unites their individual projects is the focus on the development of arts and culture within specific (local) social, cultural, economic, and political contexts, from an e-humanities perspective.

At the core of CREATE you find a group of young researchers supervised by principal investigators. These PI’s develop new and exciting research avenues and collaborate closely with Pre PhD fellows and students. Pre PhD fellows have recently graduated and are pursuing an academic career. Student assistants help the CREATE staff, facilitate Pre PhD research, and develop their own projects. Data scientists and programmers assist where necessary.

The CREATE network is open-ended, which means that the composition of the group of researchers changes with each new project we start. Projects often involve co-operation with partners from other universities and cultural heritage institutions.If you’d like to read more about what we do at CREATE, please click here.
