Virtual Archives for Research in the Humanities

The project »Jewish Scholars at the Leipzig University. Participation, Disadvantage and  Exclusion. A Website« was part of the funding initiative »Virtual Archives for Research in the Humanities« sponsored by the Saxon Ministry of Science and Art. In the framework of an overarching project coordinated by the Saxon Academy of Sciences (SAW) aiming at the creation of a collaborative data repository, the Leibnitz Institute for Jewish History and Culture – Simon Dubnow is creating a registry of Jewish scholars working in Leipzig in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The data collection will combine biographical sketches with information on the scholars' significance and work, which will be prepared systematically for scholarship and the interested public in the form of a web portal.
