Conference: Digital Methods and Resources in Legal History - cancelled!

Attention: This event had to be cancelled!

In order to provide an opportunity for the critical discussion of digital methods and resources in legal history, and in order to learn about the vast array of such methods and resources, the Max-Planck-Institute for European Legal History holds a Conference on "Digital Methods and Resources in Legal History" on 19/20 March 2020. We invite interested researchers to present collections, databases, gazetteers and similar resources of relevance to legal history, but also to show how these or other resources, and how digital methods in general have been put to use in concrete project contexts. Note that we explicitly invite reports about research questions, projects or approaches that have failed to find or create digital means to work with in a satisfactory manner, too. The call for papers/posters is available here, along with a more elaborate discussion of the conference's rationale and other bits of information. Submissions should be sent by e-mail to by 2019-09-15.
