Digital Humanities and the Study of the Past

Project Lead Jenny Benham will be giving a talk in December at Charles University, Prague, in the guest lecture series on Digital Humanities and the Study of the Past.

From the website:

The guest lecture series Digital Humanities and the Study of the Past (part of the Medieval Social Conflicts and Contrasts project) attempts to bring scholars working in the emerging field of Digital Humanities with the focus on Medieval or Early Modern topics to both local and international audience at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, Prague. We hope to cover a number of a wide field of approaches and angles through presentations of successful digital projects or notable works in progress.

The 2017/18 Winter Term is convened by: Ondřej Tichý.

Jenny will be giving her talk on The Early English Laws project, which we’ve highlighted in one of our #SpotlightOn posts.

Jenny’s talk will take place on 06th December 2017.

Details on Jenny’s Talk:

‘Early English Laws ( is a project to publish online and in print new editions and translations of all English legal codes, edicts, and treatises produced up to the time of Magna Carta 1215.

This lecture explores some of the approaches, questions and tools designed to study these medieval law texts, while also highlighting the difficulties of developing sustainable research resources, possible solutions, and future needs.’
