We are excited to welcome three research assistants to DISSINET: Gabriele Passabì (Ph.D. candidate in History at the University of Cambridge), Katia Riccardo (Research Master student in Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Utrecht University), and Jan Volek (Ph.D. candidate in History at the University of Minnesota). They will join the DISSINET team for several months from November and will help us with the transcription and transformation of historical data within a digital environment.
In response to our call for applications, we received over twenty strong applications. Candidates came from both Europe and beyond, and from a wide range of medieval research backgrounds and career stages. We are delighted that the computational approach to historical research we are developing in DISSINET sparked the interest of so many excellent researchers!
