Under the motto “The Age of Technology: Documents, Archives and Society” a wide range of speakers from the Iberian Peninsula will share their experiences and expertise with us. The spectrum of speakers is expanded by further presentations from colleagues of our ICARUS network. The conference promises a truly multi-facetted insight into current projects and developments of the European archival landscape in the digital age.

Furthermore, we will celebrate our 15th anniversary of Europe´s virtual charters archive – Monasterium with a talk show. Colleagues involved in the development of the Monasterium portal will take a look back at the beginnings and discuss options and plans for future developments.

Also, thanks to a cooperation with the Archives Portal Europe Foundation, we can offer a workshop for students within our meeting: On 24 October, Ana María López Cuadrado (Country Manager Archives Portal Europe, Ministerio de Educación Cultura y Deporte. Subdirección de los Archivos Estatales, ES) will conduct a workshop for students and scholars in Spanish, explaining how to conduct research using the Archives Portal Europe. As the largest online archives catalogue in the world, this Portal is a one-of-a-kind innovative tool for conducting archival research online: the Portal allows simultaneous research in hundreds of institutions throughout Europe, and it supports multilingual research.

Digital Humanities: Empowering Visibility of Croatian Cultural Heritage @ University of Zadar
Nov 6 – Nov 7 all-day

2nd International Symposium

The international symposium on Digital Humanities: Empowering Visibility of Croatian Cultural Heritage is the continuation of the 1st symposium held in October 2016 under the title Creative Potential of Glagolitic Heritage. These symposiums are part of the scientific activities related to the project digitization, bibliographic description and research of texts written in Glagolitic, Croatian Cyrillic and Latin scripts until the end of the 19th century in the Zadar and Šibenik area.  Since the project is mainly focused on the digitization of Glagolitic heritage, and therefore a large number of topics related to Glagolism is expected, the symposium is included in the year of the Glagolitic Script declared by the Zadar County.
The purpose of the symposium is to cover topics from the areas defining and questioning digital humanities as a new science, as well as the description, research and access to cultural heritage in the digital environment, national and local guidelines and documents related to the digitization of cultural heritage, creative usage of cultural heritage, cultural tourism and including the community into the research of cultural heritage. Particular emphasis is placed on the presentation of methods and research results of cultural heritage, especially written heritage, namely manuscripts and old books and its fragments and watermarks, but also the research in archeology, underwater archeology, art history, linguistics, classical philology, philology, applied arts, etc.
In the context of reflection on the future of research in the field of humanities, starting from the tradition which the University of Zadar nurtures in the field of humanities, the aim of this Symposium is to present research methods and tools from as many fields and branches of the humanities, but also other fields, in order to identify the main research approaches, areas of cooperation within the humanities and other fields, and start a discussion about the need to develop an institutional or cross-institutional center for digital humanities at the University of Zadar.
