DigitalHistory@Lund: seminars & workshops

DigitalHistory@Lund is a platform that aims at promoting digital history and to support the development of new digital history research projects. It is a collaboration between the Section for Media History, and Lund Centre for the History of Knowledge (LUCK) and funded by The Joint Faculties of Humanities and Theology, Lund University, 2021–2022. Sune Bechmann Pedersen and Kajsa Weber are coordinating the platform activites. Mathias Johanssonis research engineer at DigitalHistory@Lund.

The advance of digital technology is having a profound impact on all aspects of the historian’s craft, and DigitalHistory@Lund will be a platform for debating examining and promoting these changes. Digital tools are affecting the collection, organization, interpretation, and presentation of sources as well as the communication of historians with colleagues, students, and the broader public. Digital literacy is thus crucial for today’s historians. New media are also reshaping archives and libraries in unpredictable ways. It is certain, though, that the current politics of digitalization greatly influences future historical research. Critical discussions of cultural heritage and digitization – in close collaboration with archives and libraries – are thus essential to ensure the accessibility and usability of historical collections. 

DigitalHistory@Lund organize several seminars and workshops during spring 2021.  https://projekt.ht.lu.se/digitalhistory
