Projects

Seven projects have been selected with regard to the expected interactions between the key domains frequently associated with the United States’ cultural influence and the degree to which they are represented in the digital corpus. The uniformity of the projects will provide comparable research data for a concluding study about the dynamics of reference cultures.

  2. The Good society: The United States as a reference culture for state, civil society and the citizen (Postdoc: dr. Bram Mellink)
