Research Program in History

Digital media, online archives and big search engines have become an integrated part of our professional toolbox. But what are the implications for professional historiography? And how to draw the boarders between designated ‘digital history’ and the ‘non-digital’ historian’s regular use of google, archive.org, and Infomedia? This seminar addresses some of these questions by exploring the digital dimensions of history today.

Confirmed speakers:

Jane Winters, School of Advanced Study, University of London. http://research.sas.ac.uk/search/staff/126/dr-jane-winters/
