Archives in the Age of Digital Humanities
University of Évora, 24-25 October 2018


An increasingly significant part of the current documentary memory is being digitized in the Information Technology (ICT) systems of private companies and public institutions, on servers connected to the global network, as well as on our computers and mobile devices. At the same time, files inherited from the past are subjected to digital conversion processes and become increasingly accessible over the Internet. To discuss the relationship between historical research, sources and digital means, means to confront a rapidly changing access to information dynamics, as well as to trace some lines of possible criticism of digital sources capable of providing the historian and not only with the essential tools for analysis and interpretation to face the complex technological, cultural and social stratifications of the new digital era.
