Digital Methods and Resources in Legal History
We invite researchers to attend our online conference on ‘Digital Methods and Resources in Legal History’, which is intended to provide an opportunity for the critical discussion of digital methods and resources in legal history. We will have presentations of collections, databases, gazetteers and similar resources of relevance to legal history, and discuss how these and other resources, and digital methods in general, have been put to use in concrete project contexts. Interested researchers, whether from legal history, the digital humanities or other fields, are welcome.
