The initiative aims to make available contributions from all areas of the historical sciences, archaeology, and art history, so addressing the demand for interdisciplinary information on the historical humanities. L.I.S.A. - the Gerda Henkel Foundation's science portal is publicly accessible since spring 2010. Gerda Henkel Foundation scholarship holders and project partners, as well as anyone else that has an interest in the historical humanities, are invited to share their knowledge on the portal. Internationally renowned academics and young researchers will be able to take part via conference reporting, literary reviews, event announcements, pod casts, dossiers, expert chats and online lectures. The portal contains text, image, and video elements.
