Sunday-Wednesday, 6-10 October 2013
At the National Library of Israel and the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute

Applications are invited to a workshop on Computer Technologies for the Historical Research of Intellectual Networks. In the workshop, sponsored by the National Library of Israel in the framework of the “Innovative Technologies in the Humanities” series, and by the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, leading international scholars will present digital humanities projects that combine intellectual history and network visualization technologies, and will teach the tools and methods that have been developed for them. A pre-circulated list of background reading will prepare the participants for the unique opportunity to test and explore some of the recently developed technological tools by themselves, with the close, hands-on guidance of international experts on the subject. The participants will have the chance to explore open-access tools, experiment with datasets from several case studies and, finally, connect with the thriving international community of historical network research.
