Event: Reading historical sources in the digital age, Luxembourg, 5-6.12.2013

The Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe (CVCE), together with the Jean Monnet Chair in History of European Integration (University of Luxembourg, FLSHASE) and its research programme ‘Digital Humanities Luxembourg’ — DIHULUX (research unit Identités-Politiques-Sociétés-Espaces (IPSE)) — and the University of Luxembourg’s Master’s in Contemporary European History, are organising the DHLU Symposium 2013. It will be held at the Cercle Cité in Luxembourg city on the 5 and 6 December 2013.

The symposium under the title “Reading historical sources in the digital age” is structured in panels on „Distant/close reading“, “Writing history & Assessing scholarship” and “Writing history”.  Amongst others, the influence of “Computational Methods within Philosophy”, will be analyzed as well as “the transfer and further development of methods of access from printed to digital(ized) editions”. Regarding digitalized sources, national boundaries can play a certain role, which will also be reflected. Amongst more theoretical papers, there will also be discussions on practices and uses of digital sources in different fields. On the 5 December, Tim Hitchcock (University of Hertfordshire; co-director of the Old Bailey online) will hold a Keynote on “Big Data for Dead People: Digital Readings and the Conundrums of Positivism”.
