Introducing: Monika Barget

My name is Monika Barget and I have joined FASoS as assistant professor in the history department.

Apart from early modern history, I specialise in digital research methods. I am eager to bring established humanities approaches such as source criticism and computational analysis together on an equal footing.

In my postdoc position at the Institute of European History in Mainz, Germany, I taught digital editing in the Digital Humanities MA programme at the local university and contributed to staff training in data management, digital text analysis and digital mapping. I was also involved in different digital research infrastructures and am looking forward to sharing my experiences with colleagues and students at FASoS. Some of our training materials are available on GITHUB.

Alongside teaching and research in Maastricht, I will continue to supervise the geohumanities project “Digitale Kartenwerkstatt Altes Reich” (DigiKAR), which experimentally models and visualises spatial data from early modern Electoral Mainz and Saxony. My personal research project traces German perceptions of European island regions in the early modern period. As borders, identities and transregional exchanges are well-established research themes at FASoS, I am convinced that we will have a lot to discuss, and I am looking forward to meeting you in person soon.
