Understanding Written Artefacts
Material, Interaction and Transmission in Manuscript Cultures
Since 2019, CSMC is home to the Cluster of Excellence ‘Understanding Written Artefacts’ (UWA). The research at UWA aims to develop a global framework for the study of all written artefacts from the beginning of writing to the present day and from all regions that have produced such artefacts.Funded by the DFG and in cooperation with Helmut Schmidt Universität, TU Hamburg, and the Universität Lübeck, the Cluster comprises over 50 research projects from 40 academic disciplines.
