The LANG-KEY project is generously funded by a Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation Jubilee Initiative Grant, awarded in 2015. It is hosted by the Humanities Laboratory at the Faculty of Humanities and Theology at Lund University, Sweden. The laboratory represents an outstanding research environment for the project – technologically, intellectually, and administratively. The technology and methodological expertise on offer will be crucial for field applications to several methodological aspects of the project. The project will also make full use of the laboratory’s digital archive for its documentary objectives. The project is co-hosted by Newcastle University, Radboud University, University of Zurich, and the University of Southern Denmark.
