Remit Membership Outputs and Activities


The Genealogies of Knowledge Research Network seeks to connect scholars across disciplinary, linguistic and geographical boundaries with a focus on corpus-based conceptual research, to promote the use of the corpora built by the Genealogies of Knowledge Project, and to assist others in compiling similarly designed corpora in other fields such as the medical humanities and applying/extending the GoK methodology. This website provides all the necessary information about the project and its outputs. If you are interested in a potential collaboration, please feel free to contact one of the Network’s coordinators. Our corpora and the dedicated suite of software tools are freely accessible.  If you have made extensive use of our resources for research purposes and plan to do so in the future, we welcome membership applications subject to the condition that you have published peer-reviewed research that explicitly engages with the corpora or software developed by the project or are seriously considering building similar corpora to conduct conceptual research, in any field.

Current Partnerships and Ongoing Projects

The GoK Research Network is currently working with the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare Education (SHE), Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo on developing a number of projects and on building the Oslo Medical Corpus (OSM) to support research and educational activities led by SHE. OSM will adopt and later adapt the GOK software interface and will initially be housed on the GoK server. For further information, see:
