Digital Humanities on Thursday

In cooperation with Italian and foreign institutions, associations and universities a series of seminars entitled Digital Humanities on Thursday is organised within the courses of Palaeography and Diplomatics held respectively for the Master course in Archaeology, History of Arts and Sciences of Cultural Heritage and for the Bachelor course in Historical Sciences.

Facing a wide range of issues ranging from mediaeval history, museology, editorial methodology for historical documents, ecology to experimental pedagogy and teaching methodologies and addressing also the promotion and dissemination of knowledge of cultural heritage, the seminars aim to show how digital technologies enhance the possibilities to study and the usability of historical documents and how a transdisciplinary approach is essential in the field of Digital Humanities, in which Palaeography and Diplomatics are gaining an increasingly important place in the European context.

Please share with all potentially interested, especially young scholars, undergraduates and PhD students!

The seminars were organised within the Icarus Didactics group (ICARUS4Education) and in cooperation with the University of Graz, Zentrum für Informationsmodellierung, the Museum of Agricultural Sciences – MUSA (University of Naples Federico II), the San Bonaventura Onlus Association, the University of Belgrade (Faculty of Philosophy), the Time machine project, the DSW Lab – Historical documents on the web of the Department of Humanities, with the support of the Erasmus+ International mobility for Staff Teaching and Training activities 2019 programme.
