The discipline-specific working groups “Modern History” and “Contemporary History” in CLARIN-D, under the direction of the Georg-Eckert-Institute and the Center for Contemporary History in Potsdam, extend a warm invitation to their conference, to be held at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Science in Berlin on 8 and 9 February.
In addition to an introduction to the tools and sources relevant to CLARIN-D, current research topics and trends will be presented and discussed, mostly centering around mass media (such as newspapers, textbooks etc.) from the eighteenth century to the present day. We will also seek to discuss the methodological, conceptional and technical questions of curating textual data for the historical sciences, as well as recounting the existing challenges and opportunities to the academic community.
