Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe

CORE Admin
Geographic visualisation of over 38000 letters in the ERNiE database.
ERNiE contains over 1700 analytical articles on themes and persons, as well as historical documentation, tracing and visualizing the transnational rise of national culture-building in 19th-century Europe.

The Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe (ERNiE) has played a foundational role in the development of nodegoat.

Work on nodegoat started in October 2011 when Joep Leerssen approached Pim van Bree and Geert Kessels to develop a visualisation of a set of historical letters. The first version of this visualisation was a diachronic spatial data visualisation, which still runs at http://projects.lab1100.com/labmap/.

In the development of the editorial framework as well the public user interface for ERNiE, a number of key features of nodegoat were realised.

ERNiE is coordinated by the Study Platform on Interlocking Nationalisms at the University of Amsterdam. The editor of ERNiE is Joep Leerssen. ERNiE has been financed by by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research through its Spinoza Prize and by the grant of an Academy Professor Prize by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2010.
