About this Workshop Series
Visualizing networks of correspondence, mapping intellectual geographies, mining textual corpora: many modes of digital scholarship have special relevance to the problems and methods of the history of science, and the last few years have seen the launch of a number of new platforms and projects in this area. With contributions from projects from the UK and elsewhere in Europe, these two workshops will be an opportunity to share ideas, to reflect on what is being achieved and to consider what might be done next.
This is the second of a pair of one-day workshops, the first of which took place on 28 September 2017, that showcase and explore some of the work currently being done at the intersection of digital scholarship and the history of science. They are organised by the Centre for Digital Scholarship, University of Oxford; Reading Euclid project; the Newton Project; and the Royal Society.
