Creative Amsterdam: An E-Humanities Perspective

CREATE is short for Creative Amsterdam: An E-Humanities Perspective, a research programme established in 2014. The project is based at the department of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam.

Our project integrates research on historical cultural industries and research in the field of digital humanities. We investigate how cultural industries have shaped Amsterdam’s unique position in a European and global context, from the seventeenth century until the present day. In doing so, we collect data on the various cultural sectors of Amsterdam, link and enrich datasets, and develop novel search, and analysis tools.

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. Assistants help the CREATE staff, facilitate Pre PhD research, and develop their own projects. Data scientists and programmers assist where necessary.
