Summer School: Things That Matter. Material and Culture in/for the Digital Age

Summer School: Things That Matter. Material and Culture in/for the Digital Age

15th June 2020 - 19th June 2020

The Summer School engages with key questions that arise from the study of the past in the digital age. These issues include the changing nature of objects such as books and scientific instruments as source materials; the history and practice of collections and collecting, digitization and its challenges, both technological and intellectual. “Things that Matter” maps the possibilities and challenges posed by the digital age for researchers. The ongoing process of digitization makes sources of the past available to a previously unknown extent: but what does this mean for researchers?

 

The deadline for application for the summer school is 31 March 2020.
