Vanessa Hannesschläger

About speaker - Title and Organisation: 
Researcher for ACDH

Vanessa Hannesschläger completed her studies in German Language and Literature at the University of Vienna with a diploma thesis on Peter Handke. She gained experience in working with archival material in a digital context in online projects on Peter Handke and Ernst Jandl, which inspired her interest in standardization and preservation of (meta)data, digitization processes, and the semantic web’s potential benefits for the arts and humanities. Her research focuses on digital editing/text encoding, controlled vocabularies, (digital) archival theory, (biographical) data modelling, digital legal issues, and transdisciplinary research. 

At the ACDH, she works on data curation and is involved in PARTHENOS, CLARIN, DARIAH and dha activities as well as the institute’s outreach program. In addition, she is a young science ambassador and handles licensing and legal issues.

Vanessa is currently a Wikimedia Germany Open Science Fellow, working on the project Handke: in Zungen. In 2017, she won the Open Minds Award (Category: Female) for her work on the TEI Abstracts App.
