Christian-Emil Ore is an associate professor and head of Unit for Digital Documentation (EDD) at the University of Oslo and has worked with digital methods in the humanities for 25 years. Ore works along three main lines: Methods for cultural heritage documentation, lexicography & corpus and electronic text editions (medieval charters).

 

An important issue in Ore’s work is how to make the information in memory institutions electronically available:  Standards like TEI for text encoding and common core ontologies like CIDOC-CRM for data interchange. Standards must not be straitjackets choking new research. Without them, however, we can never interlink our research data meaningfully, making it harder to argue for the usefulness of digital methods.

 

Ore has been the principal investigator for several large scale national database and digitalization project for the university museums and cultural heritage collections in Norway  and was one of the two founders of the Medieval Nordic Text Archive (menota.org). He has participated in and coordinated long term language documentation projects in Southern Africa, served on scientific and advisory boards in US, Germany and Scandinavia and chaired ICOM-CIDOC (2004-2010),

 

Ore co-chairs TEI ontology SIG and is one of the international editors of the conceptual model CIDOC-CRM (cidoc-crm.org), and the current chair of the association Digital Humanities in the Nordic countries (DHN, http://dig-hum-nord.eu/)

Ore is currently participating in the Norwegian infrastructure project Archaeological Digital Excavation Documentation (ADED) with the objective to create a common open repository for archeological data from excavations and from museums and archives. Ore is responsible for the overarching conceptual model for the archeological data from excavation and in museums and archives.
