GLOBALISE: Call for Data Contributions

Historical reference data are a crucial part of our project: we collect available information about (f.e.) historical persons, places, and commodities and link those to related mentions in archival records. This data also helps to correctly categorize events and entities. We are currently looking for data related to polities, persons, places, weights, measures and currencies – pertaining to the sphere of VOC activity, namely the Indian Ocean World, in the period between 1600 and 1800.
Datasets need not necessarily be based on VOC archives and can also draw on other early modern sources.
