We are very pleased to announce the programme for the autumn 2013 term meetings of the seminar. The seminar will meet four times during the term and topics cover a range of digital history projects and methodologies. The first session, on 15 October, will feature Adam Crymble (King’s College London) who will be talking about the Programming Historian, a project that has developed ‘a tutorial-based open access textbook designed to teach humanists practical computer programming skills that are immediately useful to real reasearch needs’. The second session features Rob Nelson (University of Richmond) who will be talking about his work using topic modelling to explore nationalist ideology during the American Civil War. This session will be followed by Rob Iliffe (University of Sussex) who is the Director of the Newton Project. He will be exploring how the digitization of Newton’s papers provides new insights into his life and work. We finish off the term with Erica Calogero (University of Brighton) who will be talking about her work on 3D reconstructions of historical buildings.
The full programme with dates, times, names and titles is on the seminar programme page of the blog. We look forward to seeing you there.
