Jörg Wettlaufer

Guest, former Senior Research Associate (2016-2019)

Jörg Wettlaufer studied History, History of Art and Physical Anthroplogy in  Bochum, Kiel and Paris, France. He received his Ph.D. in 1998 for an interdisciplinary study on a problem in the history of late medieval law. From 1996 to 2011 he was involved in a research project on late medieval courts and residences of the Academy of Science at Göttingen that was hosted at the Christian-Albrechts-University at Kiel. In this project he was, among other things, responsible for the research database and the online publication of the results. He is in charge of several online projects that are concerned with, e.g., late medieval travel accounts and the history of emotions in medieval law and he has (co )founded several social online networks for scientists in the last millennium and after. Within the DHFV he worked for the Academy of Science in the project "Digital Library and Virtual Museum" on Semantic Web solutions for text-object relationship modelling. He is currently working as Digitisation Coordinator for the Academy and especially for digital learning and teaching at the faculty of Humanities at Georg-August University Göttingen. He is especially interested in the application of Semantic Web technologies in Digital History and adaptive research/publication environments for researchers in this domain.
