    Miquel Hernàndez (databases creation and maintenance)

    Location: Departament de Filologia Catalana i Lingüística General, Facultat de Filologia i Comunicació, Universitat de Barcelona

    Objectives:

    The project proposes the study of some aspects of:

    1. The medical system created from the end of the 13th century in Western Europe
    2. The process of vernacularization of medical, scientific and technical knowledge parallel to the late medieval urban renaissance, particularly in the Catalan framework but also in some nearby Mediterranean contexts
    3. The reception of these processes in literature, in the lexicon and in art

    General initiatives:

    • Several critical editions and specialized studies will be produced
    • Existing digital resources, created with the help of previous funded projects (Sciència.cat DB and MedCat databases), will be enriched, and new ones will be designed (FalconAr and MedNav databases)
    • The research dissemination sections on Sciència.cat and FalconAr will be enhanced
