International Conference on Digital Humanities and Gender History

International Conference on Digital Humanities and Gender History


The Chair of Gender History at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, together with the Arbeitskreis Historische Frauen- und Geschlechterforschung e.V. and the Digital German Women's Archive (Digitales Deutsches Frauenarchiv), is organising a virtual international conference on "Digital Humanities and Gender History" on four Friday afternoons of February 2021. The meetings will take place on 5.2., 12.2., 19.2. and 26.2.2021, 4 - 8 p.m. The ZMI member Prof. Dr. Thomas Gloning will be represented with a lecture together with Anna Pfund at the conference.

The conference aims to address gender-historical aspects of the history of the digital and the digital humanities as well as the application of digital methods and research workflows for gender-historical questions. The conference will examine the gender-historical implications of digital methods, tools and projects as well as the possibilities and limitations, added values and challenges that digital methods offer for the study of gender history.

The four conference afternoons in February form a unit, so participation in all four dates would be desirable. The conference languages are English and German. We are currently planning to provide automatic simultaneous English translation of the German contributions.

Meetings will be held via Zoom.
