CLARIN-D in Humanities and Social Sciences

Researchers of all disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences can use the services and data provided by CLARIN-D. Disciplines using language data in a broader sense will find a rich infrastructure and sustainable data to use, e.g. text collections, records of spoken language, experimental data on human language processing or lexical resources. For the individual disciplines, CLARIN-D offers the possibility to exchange data and knowledge and provides a targeted software to support research processes. Within CLARIN-D, the individual disciplines are organised in specialised Working Groups (WGs).

The Circulation of language data in the Humanities and Social Sciences

Conducting research with digital language and text data in the Humanities and Social Sciences poses new challenges:

  • Accessing: Data and results of research processes which can be used for analyses should be stored centrally and easily accessible
  • Analysing: CLARIN-D offers computational tools to analyse data in various ways - along methodological standards
  • Preparing and Depositing: Research results need to be processed for later research. They should be easily accessible and sustainable

The CLARIN-D research infrastructure supports the Humanities and Social Sciences by providing their digital resources in a more sustainable, open and interoperable way. From the beginning of the project, CLARIN-D has been working together with different disciplines to develop an infrastructure suitable to their requirements and to make the services of CLARIN-D known across the communities of various disciplines.
