Andreas Wagner studied information science in Frankfurt am Main (1994-1999) and has since been working with digital tools, especially in the context of digital humanities since 2013. He was awarded a PhD in philosophy in 2008 here in Frankfurt. Moreover, he has been researching and teaching legal and political philosophy at the Cluster of Excellence "The Formation of Normative Orders" in Frankfurt, at the University of Hamburg, and at the Academy of Sciences and of Literature in Mainz.
Since 2017, he supports and consults the Institute’s researchers, working groups, and facilities with regard to the modelling and acquisition of text and data, its interpretation and analysis, as well as presentation and publication. In those instances where such tools are utilised, he is responsible for their implementation as well as—in close collaboration with the researchers—the adaptation and adjustment thereof to the specific needs of the project(s).
