SEMINAR: Unlocking the Past in the Digital Age

We are delighted to announce the open seminar “Unlocking the Past in the Digital Age: Research Questions, Methods and Best Practices” organised by the Constellations of Correspondence research project on November 16, 2023. The open and free for all seminar will be held in the House of Science and Letters (Tieteiden talo) in Helsinki.

This half-day seminar will explore issues that all digital humanities projects are facing today: how best to process data, how to guide users in understanding these choices and the local specificities of the data, and how to combine qualitative and quantitative research methods. The seminar asks what unknown and unexpected insights we can gain by paying critical attention to the biases and temporal and spatial layers in the data we process and study. The seminar will also provide concrete examples of data sets and settings currently being aggregated and used in digital humanities research projects, and will discuss the potential impact of such research. The full list of speakers and presentations can be found on the seminar webpage.

Registration for the seminar is now open and will end on November 6, 2023. Register through the event page:
