The KBR-ULB-UGent Digital Heritage Seminar: Fall 2021: Historical Networks. In this series from October to December 2021 we will virtually host three academic scholars in presenting their work on cultural heritage and historical networks. Network research serves to enhance our understanding of the human past, by retracing the social, political, or cultural networks from historical materials. We show in this series how these findings and approaches to networks, through a variety of topics, periods and methods, give us unique insights in the past and the materials we use in our work.

These talks will be held, on Zoom, in English, with questions in French, Dutch or English. The target audience is scholars, but the general public is warmly welcome.
