How can we tell stories that form a counterweight to master narratives? How can we access what has been thought to be inaccessible, uninteresting, unworthy, and even lost? This project aims to tackle the countercurrents of historiography by discovering and/or reassessing archival material in a series of publications on original topics. To exemplify the methodological implications of “Discrete Archives” I am going to present the life of the fugitive countess and canoness Katharina of Wurttemberg (07.12.1441–28.06.1497).
