Short description:

Nederlab (http://www.nederlab.nl/) will develop a comprehensive research corpus in the form of an infrastructure for the humanities. Dutch texts which are relevant for the history of the Dutch language and culture – from the oldest written period untill now- are brought together in digitized form. Scholars can then simultaneously search and analyse these data. This will allow humanities researchers to formulate new research questions, and to set up systematic research into the interaction of changes in culture, society, literature and language across the full history.
