Martin Grandjean receives SNSF Early Postdoc.Mobility grant

dhCenter member Martin Grandjean, a lecturer in contemporary and digital history at the University of Lausanne (UNIL) and in digital humanities at EPFL, has received an Early Postdoc.Mobility grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) for a project on the archives of the United Nations’ predecessor: the League of Nations.

The two-year project will undertake a global, systematic and structural analysis of the archives of the League of Nations, in order to study all the different actors — the international civil servants, scientific and legal experts, secretariat employees, translators, and typists — who made up this organization.

This research will involve the data-driven analysis of nearly 15 million pages and more than 2000 photographs in the League of Nations archive, which is currently in the process of being digitized by the United Nations office in Geneva.
