Cultural Industries in the Dutch Golden Age

The domain Dutch Golden Age will expand on existing digital humanities initiatives that have focused on Amsterdam such as ECARTICO (database on Economic and Artistic Competition).

It collaborates closely with the Centre for Digital Humanities (see, for instance, the project Digital Canal Ring). One of its larger aims will be to couple existing databases of historical research, both in an interdisciplinary fashion (e.g., image databases used in art history and text databases used in literary history) and in an international one (e.g., comparing Amsterdam’s cultural industry to those of Antwerp, Rome, Paris, and London) in order to generate ‘big data’ that transcend local scholarship.
