Event: digital approaches to research, Aarhus 30 October

Aarhus University in Denmark has recently seen the creation of a Centre for Digital History and the SDAM group (Social Dynamics in the Ancient Mediterranean, with loads of interest in networks). These initiatives are the driving forces behind the first in what I feel might be a series of international activities we can expect from them on the topic of digital approach in the humanities and social sciences.
