MarineLives Digital History Research Programme 2014-2015

The MarineLives Digital History Research Programme 2014-2015 can be downloaded here. The programme has been developed with our academic partners - the universities of Bath Spa, Mannheim, and St. Andrews - and remains open to new individuals and academic institutions, who share our research interests and collaborative approach.

MarineLives is an innovative academic/public history hybrid for the collaborative transcription, linkage and enrichment of primary manuscripts, which were originated in the High Court of Admiralty, London, 1650-1669. The end product will be a publicly and freely available online academic edition under a CC by 3.0 licence. It is run as a not-for-profit organisation.

The research programme is built upon six research themes, and consists of a series of related collaborative research projects around those themes.

The themes are:

  • Collaborative transciption

  • Natural language processing of the MarineLives corpus

  • Collaborative annotation

  • Geospatial enablement of the MarineLives corpus

  • Case studies

  • Content driven/corpus enabled research opportunities at masters/doctoral level
