    What makes work at the C²DH unique

    Research at the C²DH is conceived as a trading zone, where people from different disciplines meet, interact and learn from each other. It’s an experimental space for knowledge production and dissemination at the intersection of data science and history. Interdisciplinarity is at the very heart of the concept of trading zone: the transfer and exchange of concepts, methods, tools, techniques and skills between or across different disciplinary fields or domains.

    The concept of flat hierarchies, transparency, shared authority and responsibility has proven itself to benefit productivity and discussion culture across disciplines

    We encourage our colleagues to experiment, to perceive science as a way to create uncertainty in a creative and playful approach. In 2021, Prof. Andreas Fickers’ efforts to shape the next generation of independent researchers was recognized with the FNR award for outstanding mentor.
