CONF: Digital Methods in History and Economics (University of Hamburg / zoom; 14-15 Oct 2021)

The application of digital methods is a fast-growing field in humanities, social sciences, and economics, influencing research practices within the different disciplines. This workshop, an integral part of DFG priority programme 1859 “Experience & Expectation: Historical Foundations of Economic Behaviour”, aims to bring together and to discuss different applications of digital methods from projects of the priority programme with external scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds with a special emphasis on “text as data”.

The purpose of this interdisciplinary workshop is to foster the exchange between the different fields and the exchange between the researchers involved in the priority programme with external scholars.

Keynotes will be delivered by:
• Michael McMahon (University of Oxford, and CEPR, Director of the Research Policy Network on Central Bank Communication)
• Melvin Wevers (University of Amsterdam)
• Clemens Neudecker (Staatsbibliothek Berlin)
