Annemieke Romein is a postdoctoral researcher. In 2017 she received an NWO Rubicon to work at the Institute for Early Modern History at Ghent University and at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. In 2019 she received an NWO VENI for further comparative research on governmental institutions of provinces and cities (1579-1701) in the Low Countries and Switzerland.
Her ‘Entangled Histories’-project at the KB National Library of the Netherlands improves the OCR-quality of early modern legal texts (books of ordinances) and by using computational methods adds metadata to these texts. This improves the read- and searchability of early modern legal texts and enables us to study the uniqueness of legislation, or - probably - the entanglement of the texts.
