CENDARI Summer Schools
The annual CENDARI Summer Schools (2013, ’14, ’15) are designed to address collections-based challenges to transnational research, such as how to represent sources that have become ‘hidden’ or lost through accidents of history. Over the course of one week, participants will address specifically how CENDARI aims to resolve the difficulties of historical research through the application of digital technologies and methods.
Participants present their own work and receive feedback from peers; attend seminars by leading authorities in transnational modern and medieval European history, as well as in Digital Humanities; deepen their understanding of the impact of the material record on the practice of history and gain familiarity with powerful new tools in research-oriented information technology.
The next Summer School will be held in July 2014.
The CENDARI project, in collaboration with the COST Action: IS 1005, ‘Medioevo Europeo: Medieval Studies and Technological Resources’ (www.medioevoeuropeo.eu), hosted the first of 3 annual CENDARI Summer Schools in Florence, Italy
The full programme is available to download here: Summer School 2013 Programme (pdf).
The five-day programme combined sessions with expert speakers and collaborative design workshops. Attendees at the Summer School presented their own research questions in the context of digital methods and tools.
A number of bursaries were made available through both CENDARI and Medioevo Europeo.
