Abstract

The fact that eHumanities together with digital Humanities can generally be put onto an equal footing with computational linguistics is reflected in the allocation pattern of institutional funding in Germany during the last few years. In line with this new direction, almost to the exclusion of all others, only those projects which are concerned with the assessment and analysis of texts in the very broadest context were being and still are being supported. Numerous representatives from the humanities such as the German Association of Historians (Verband der Historiker und Historikerinnen Deutschlands) have called for a radical re-think in their subjects and have highlighted the fact that eHumanities are by no means solely concerned with textual analysis.
