In order to provide an opportunity for
the critical discussion of digital methods and resources in legal history, and
in order to learn about the vast array of such methods and resources, the
Max-Planck-Institute for European Legal History holds a Conference on "Digital
Methods and Resources in Legal History" on 19/20 March 2020. We invite
interested researchers to present collections, databases, gazetteers and similar
resources of relevance to legal history, but also to show how these or other
resources, and how digital methods in general have been put to use in concrete
project contexts. Note that we explicitly invite reports about research
questions, projects or approaches that have failed to find or create digital
means to work with in a satisfactory manner, too.
The call for papers/posters is available at https://www.rg.mpg.de/1709840/2020-03_conference_digital_legal_history_public.pdf, along with a more elaborate discussion of the conference's rationale and other bits of information.
Submissions should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2019-09-15.
