About Us

The purpose of CEDHAR is to bring researchers together in order to improve and to develop knowledge of all four key dimensions of digital history. This is crucial in order to uphold the quality in scholarly work at a time where digital processes are influencing everything from information retrieval and data collection, to methods, publication, and outreach in historical research. CEDHAR provides scholars at ARTS with a clearly defined and highly visible arena for exploring and supporting work in all four dimensions:

1. Digital methods focuses on the use of digital approaches and supporting IT skills for research purposes.

2. Digital archives focuses on how the increased production and use of digital archives influence the nature of archival institutions and every-day research practices.

3. Digital history communication focuses on what the democratization of historical knowledge and uses of the past online means to historical research and outreach strategies. It strongly ties in with the work by danmarkshistorien.dk and nordics.info hosted in the department of History and Classical Studies.

4. New digital sources focuses on the new types of born-digital sources that historians increasingly need to handle, for instance the archived Web.
