TIC-Collaborative is a collaborative digital humanities project, focusing on transnational intellectual cooperation (TIC) in the long nineteenth century, in particular on transnational connections in the field of social reform. Using a Virtual Research Environment (VRE) for the study of international connections, this project opens new perspectives on the history of social reform in and beyond the Low Countries in the period 1840-1940.


TIC Collaborative currently hosts and facilitates two projects: TIC Belgium and TIC International.


2TBI project

In the context of TIC, much data on actors involved in the field of social reform have been gathered. In a new CLARIAH Research Pilot project 2TBI (2wards a Transnational Biographical Infrastructure), subsets of these TIC-data will be used to create a linked data environment with CLARIAH's Historical Person Entities Portal.
