Online Compendium on German-Greek Entanglements (ComDeG) launched
News from Sep 24, 2020
On the occasion of the Online Conference "Deutsch-griechische Verflechtungen vom Deutschen Kaiserreich bis zum Einmarsch der Wehrmacht in Griechenland (1871-1941)" (24-27.09.2020) the Center for Modern Greece (CeMoG) launched the digital platform to host the Online Compendium on German-Greek Entanglements (ComDeG). Through this new established platform readers from all over the world will have open access to peer-reviewed scholarly contributions which focus on the political, economic, scientific and cultural transfer processes between the German and Greek cultural spaces, from the 18th century onwards. The ComDeG is conceived as a work-in-progress that may become a reference work for scholars, teachers, students and the general public in their search of reliable information on the people and the institutions, the fields of action and the modes of mediation, which have enabled a productive exchange between the German and Greek cultures over the last 200 years.
The digital platform comdeg.eu corresponds to the objective forwarded by the Center of Modern Greece to create substantial research tools and to publish scholarly content that allows for insights into the extent and diversity of the entangled (hi)stories of Germany and Greece. The Essays and Articles of the Compendium, co-edited by the Institute for the Study of Greek-German Relations (EMES) of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and the Center for Modern Greece (CeMoG) at Freie Universität Berlin, are connected with the Bibliographical Collections and the Knowledge Base of CeMoG through a comprehensive tagging system. The advanced search and filter functions of the ComDeG display both explicit information patterns and possible relations between people, institutions and practices based on collocation and affiliation.
The editorial environment and the publishing platform of the ComDeG were designed and implemented with the Open Encyclopedia System (OES) by the Center for Digital Systems (CeDiS) in close co-operation with the Center for Modern Greece (CeMoG). The digital platform supports incremental publishing of peer-reviewed content, offers multiple navigation options, advanced search funtions and filter options, and makes excessively use of non-ambiguous identifiers (mainly from the Integrated Authority File GND) for its content management and semantic enrichment.
