  • NWO Open Competition grant for "The Flow of Cognitive Goods"

    Rens Bod (ILLC) and Jeroen van Dongen (Institute of Physics) received an NWO Open Competition grant to carry out their project "The Flow of Cognitive Goods: Towards a Post-Disciplinary History of Knowledge". The project will fund two PhD positions and one Postdoc position (738.000 Euro). It will investigate the long-term exchanges of ideas and methods across disciplines using both digital humanities techniques (analyzing cross-citations from 46 million publications) and historical methods (primary and secondary sources).
