Cambridge Digital Humanities

 

Speakers:
John Sheridan, Digital Director, The National Archives
Daniel Bruder, Cambridge Computer Laboratory


Cambridge Digital Humanities is collaborating with the National Archives to run a series of workshops aimed at developing a funding proposal for a project exploring ways of extracting and visualising elements of document layout in large-scale digital corpora. We are particularly interested in the methodological and technical challenges involved in developing automated methods for detecting annotations in large document corpora. These exploratory workshops aim to bring together humanities scholars with computer scientists and archivists to exchange ideas, explore methods, concepts and techniques and generate research questions for future collaborations. The workshops will feature presentations mapping the terrain of current scholarship and the state-of-the-art in archival and technical approaches to this topic, as well as opportunities for discussion and problem-solving in small groups.

The second workshop in our collaborative series explores the technical challenges in mapping historical document collections at scale.
