MWW Research Association

The holdings of the German Literature Archive Marbach, the Klassik Stiftung Weimar and the Herzog August Library Wolfenbüttel span the history of half a millennium of German and European literature, culture and ideas. As centres of research in the humanities, the three institutions have been cooperating at different levels since 1990. On the recommendation of the Wissenschaftsrat (The German Council of Science and the Humanities), they are now combining their resources in a research network in order to initiate three joint research projects, to create a common infrastructure for deploying modern information technologies and to develop an internationally-oriented scholarship programme. The research network Marbach Weimar Wolfenbüttel is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
