M.R. Barget

Monika Barget is Assistant Professor in the History Department and specialises in early modern history as well as digital research methods. Her current research interests include geohumanities and island studies. As co-coordinator of the DigiKAR spatial history project, she contributes to modelling and visualising mobility and borders in the Holy Roman Empire. In the DFG-funded Island Studies Network, Monika collaborates with archaeologists, social scientists and linguists in an interdisciplinary analysis of insular spaces and their changing roles in a globalised world. An overarching theme in both projects is the exchange of data and knowledge with memory institutions and society in general.
