From Sources to Data: Historical People in the Digital Archive

4 July 2018, 11:00 - 14:00

Boardroom, Faculty of History

The creation of digital archives and editions of historical texts opens up new possibilities for the creation of structured data on human populations of the past. This workshop aims to open up the journey from archival sources to data to critical scrutiny from a range of different disciplines, with a specific focus on the potential and challenges involved in the reconstruction of statistics about historical populations through case studies presented by the Cambridge Population Group, the Casebooks Project and The National Archives.

A sandwich lunch will be served, so please help us cater accurately by cancelling your ticket if you book and find you can no longer attend.
