Forschungsprojekt

"Law as Culture: a digital project"

This research project is situated at the crossroads of digital humanities, law, museography, and places of knowledge (libraries, archives). It aims to develop a digital tool to collect and organize the data produced by The Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities so that it can be used by cultural operators and reach a wider audience. The work initiated and produced by The Käte Hamburger Center, based on the paradigm "Law as Culture," has created a new path in the field of "Humanities," through the desire to embrace a vast field, both in terms of the geographical areas considered and the types of knowledge implemented. In this spirit, it is necessary to work on the current data collected by The Käte Hamburger Center, through the study days organized and the results obtained by the fellows. It is imperative to establish an inventory of what has been done at the Center and to "translate" the progress of each project, in order to create a digital platform that can make this data available. It is not a question of building a website to advertise the Center, but of devising a data exchange module that will enable cultural operators to design innovative projects based on the paradigm of Law as Culture. The purpose of this research project is, therefore, to analyze the Center's production while establishing a state of international research in the field. The research project will follow the breakdown proposed in Werner Gephart's 2012 note and the four research axes: Law and Religion ; Law and Globalization ; Genesis, Hybridization, and Conflicts of Legal Cultures ; Subject Area IV: Cultural Forms of Law: Literature, Film, Architecture. The work, in a second phase, will consist in formalizing the models for the use of these data by cultural operators. For data to be usable, it is necessary to consider both the exploitation that can be made of it and what is now called the user experience. The project to invite artists had been conceived in part with the former director of the Kunstmuseum Bonn, Professor Dr. Dieter Ronte. In a way, it is now perhaps time to rethink the project and ask ourselves what people in the art world can do today to benefit from the work done since The Käte Hamburger Center's creation. In short, to open the Centre to the city. This research project does not aim to transmit knowledge but to imagine the conditions for a dialogue with it. Here we abandon the vision of the researcher (the "design genius"), to focus on the interaction of the product of his research with the users.
