Digital sources – access, research, opportunities, collaborations
Some questions to consider:
- What new digital resources are available to us in our research?
- What problems arise out of the use of these resources?
- How do EMHIS members respond to the Digital Humanities (e.g. text mining, corpus linguistics)?
- What do we have to say about the history of digital media?
- What is the relationship between the specific characteristics of entangled media history (as outlined by Marie and Christoph in Media History) and digital developments? Is there, in other words, an ‘entangled digital media history’?
- How should we develop the use new digital and social media in the dissemination of our work?
