Medieval Mediterranean Diasporas Database (MMDD)

Disciplined Interdisciplinarity



The Medieval Mediterranean Diasporas Database (MMDD) is hosted by the Junior research group "Trading Diasporas". Its aim is to provide a platform for the storing of the groups data in a way it was traditionnally stored in cue card systems, i.e. prosopographical data, places, events, literature and excerpts, textual sources and excerpts, objects and pictures. The database system disposes of a in-built project-management tool and interacts with metadatabases (library catalogues), a rudimentary GIS system and several wikis. The database runs for internal use on the Filemaker/HTML based hybrid database software Litlink (Preview of our database).

A version with slightly different functionalities provides the online database system LoKiHweb providing parts of the MMDD data online. This drupal7 based version of the database with enhanced collaborative tools is developed in cooperation with the ePorte project of University of Toronto, Scarborough (UTSC) and CEU Budapest, see LoKiHweb.

Other JRG as well as a team at the Historische Seminar are considering to implement similar shared database projects.
