[Wikimedia-l] Fwd: German University of Tubingen partners with Malayalam Wikimedians to digitize the works of Herman Gundert.

CherianTinu Abraham
Hi all,
        Some of you would have already heard about the recent partnership
between Malayalam Wikimedians & German University of Tubingen to digitize
the works of Herman Gundert.

Dr. Hermann Gundert was a German missionary, scholar, and linguist, as well
as the grandfather of German novelist and Nobel laureate Hermann Hesse.
Gundert compiled a Malayalam grammar book, Malayalabhaasha Vyakaranam
(1859), the Malayalam-English dictionary (1872), and contributed to work on
Bible translations into Malayalam. He worked primarily at Tellicherry on
the Malabar coast, in Kerala, India. Gundert also contributed to the fields
of history, geography and astronomy.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermann_Gundert

The corpus of nearly 80 manuscripts, 150 printed works and some palm leaf
manuscripts of the German scholar available with the university runs into
some 42,000 pages.

A detailed history of this effort can be read here

The project named “Gundert legacy – a digitization  project of the
University of Tuebingen” will be started soon.

How lovely to hear about this! I myself just finished reading Siddhartha by
Hermann Hesse.

Will anything be written on Wikipedia as a part of this effort as well?
Could students/researchers/PhD students at the German University of
Tubingenalso use this material to contribute to
Wikipedia as a part of research/ a university course?
