Annette Geßner

Researcher, eTRACES

After studying Latin, history and Ancient Greek at the Universities of Dresden and Leipzig, Annette worked at the University of Leipzig in the eAQUA-Project from 2008 till 2011. She was working in subproject 4.2, which dealt with automatically detecting Platonic secondary tradition. The interest in textual re-use and it’s detection remained in her focus, so currently she’s working at the GCDH in the Göttingen subproject of the project eTRACES (2011-2014). Here we try to find re-use of important works of world literature (like the Bible) in the text corpus of zeno.org.
