HOLYLAB: Research Fellowship in Digital History in Trento, Italy

The Italian-German Historic Institute (ISIG) and Università Roma Tre are co-hosting a one-year fellowship in Digital History to collaborate with the ERC Project HOLYLAB in Trento, Italy.

The project studies the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land, a thirteenth-century organisation funded to maintain the Holy Sepulchre and the friars’ presence in the Holy Land. HOLYLAB investigates the Custody’s economic organisation through its account books for the period 1600 and 1800. One of the project’s main objectives is to offer free access to the data on money, costs, mobility, and consumption extracted from the accounting documents.

The central task of the research fellowship candidate is to develop and populate an open-access online database for the project, starting from the collected dataset in spreadsheet format. The fellowship is set to start in September 2024 and the application deadline is 8 July.
