Digital tools and methods for historical research

The Leibniz Institute of European History invites students and researchers in history-related disciplines to a crash course on digital tools and methods for historical research organized in cooperation with DARIAH-DE. It is targeted to everyone working with historical data and interested in applying digital tools. Some understanding of structuring textual data or working with quantitative analysis is desirable, but no programming skills are required.

The workshop will cover structured data as well to discuss and compare tools from three areas: digital collections, text analysis and geohumanities. We will address the following questions: What are the opportunities and limits of the presented tools? How may we use them in our research? What skills/knowledge do we need to apply them? Web applications will be presented with research examples; participants are welcome to actively engage in the workshop (and bring their own laptops).
