Digitising the Humanities: Lecture: World War I Digital Exhibitions, 22 May 2019

Sandra Camarda (Centre for Contemporary and Digital History, Luxembourg) and Martine Vermandere (Amsab-ISG, Ghent)

On Wednesday 22 May 2019  from 15.00 - 17:00 we are delighted to welcome you to Library Lab II, Magnel Wing, Faculty Library of Arts and Philosophy, Rozier 44, Ghent for the final lecture in the Digitising the Humanities: an Internationalisation at Home (I@H) Lecture Series

In this talk you will hear first-hand from Sandra Camarda, curator of the project Éischte Weltkrich: Remembering the Great War in Luxembourg (https://ww1.lu), on the process of developing a digital exhibition. The digital platform was developed by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH), with the objective of addressing a neglected and understudied period in the history of the Grand Duchy. It brings together the collections and expertise of all the major Luxembourgish museums, archives and cultural institutions, creating a long-term digital resource.

In addition, following Dr. Camarda’s talk, we will hear from Martine Vermandere on Belgian Refugees 14-18, the virtual exhibition on Belgian refugees during the First World War for Amsab-ISG (http://tour.belgianrefugees14-18.be/en/).

This lecture will be given in English. Registration is required should you plan to attend: https://webappsx.ugent.be/eventManager/events/DHiath
