Hypermedia Berlin: Cultural Studies of the City in the Age of New Media


ACLS Digital Innovation Fellowships


Germanic Languages, Comparative Literature, and Jewish Studies


This project is an interactive, web-based research platform and collaborative authoring environment for analyzing the cultural, architectural, and urban history of a city space. Through a multiplicity of richly detailed, fully annotated digital maps connected together by interlinking "hotspots" at hundreds of key regions, structures, and streets over Berlin’s nearly 800 year history, the project brings the study of cultural and urban history together with the spatial analyses and modeling tools used by geographers.
