Beyond the Historical Narrative: Extending the Curatorial to the Digital Space

Seminar | October 4 | 1-3 p.m. | 3335 Dwinelle Hall

 Dominic Oldman, The British Museum; Diana Tanase, The British Museum

 Department of History, History Graduate Association (HGA)

The History Graduate Association invites you to join us on Thursday, October 4th for a seminar and discussion with Dominic Oldman and Diana Tanase, both senior curators of the British History Museum. They will be discussing an "in-use" knowledge system that anticipates many of the obstacles that can come up against when conducting quantitative analysis, allowing researchers in the humanities to build and integrate structured data that represents knowledge in a highly contextual and semantic form.

This new system provides a method of research that both challenges and works with traditional descriptive and analytical narratives, and offers an approach that encourages collaboration, contextualization, and human knowledge production.
