Through a glass, darkly – reflections upon digitisation

1 552 vues

Publié le

Digitisation is a process in which we seek to find a digital future from the material cultures and intellectual objects of the past. We seek to reflect upon these to gain new insights and possibly even fresh enlightenment. But as Paul the apostle stated in 1 Corinthians 13:12: “we see through a glass, darkly” and have an obscure or imperfect vision. Simon Tanner hopes in this keynote he will add light by sharing his reflections upon the benefits and value of digitization to research and scholarship. Further he will seek to provoke debate and discussion – can we see more clearly by using digitization as a means to investigate the past?

  11. 11. “Old Bailey Online reaches out to communities, such as family historians, who are keen to find a personal history, reflected in a national story... Digital resources both create a new audience, and reconfigure our analysis to favour the individual.” Professor Tim Hitchcock, University of Hertfordshire “Digitised resources allow me to discover the hidden lives of disabled people, who have not traditionally left records of their lives. I have found disability was discussed by many writers in the Eighteenth Century and that disabled men and women played an important role in the social life of the time.” Dr David Turner, Swansea University www.kdcs.kcl.ac.uk/innovation/inspiring.html New areas of research enabled
