December 2014 will mark the end of the joint research project Political Language in the Middle Ages. Semantic Approaches at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main, supported by the DFG with funding coming from the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Award. As part of a conference, we will offer a discussion of the project’s progress and intend to develop, in collaboration with our guests, perspectives for the future of digitally supported historical semantics of the Pre-Modern era. We will also introduce a new tool which promises to both transform and simplify the work of historians and philologists.
