Digital Methods and Resources in Legal History

Digital Methods and Resources in Legal History

(postponed to March 2021)

We invite researchers to participate in our conference on "Digital Methods and Resources in Legal History", which is intended to provide an opportunity for the critical discussion of digital methods and resources in legal history. We will have presentations of collections, databases, gazetteers and similar resources of relevance to legal history, and discuss how these and other resources, and digital methods in general, have been put to use in concrete project contexts. Interested researchers, whether from legal history, the digital humanities or other fields are welcome.

In the download documents section to the right, you can find the preliminary programme and the book of abstracts. While the call for papers is closed, it is also still accessible in the column to the right, as it also contains a more detailed statement on the conference's rationale.
