London Digital Humanities Group Seminar Series, 30 April 2013<x-apple-data-detectors://1>

5.15, Room S264, 2nd Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

'Manufacturing Pasts: Digitising the Industrial Landscape in Twentieth-Century Britain'

Terese Bird (Learning Technology), Simon Gunn (Urban History) and Tania Rowlett (University Library), University of Leicester

This seminar introduces a new JISC project based at the University of Leicester which has produced resources on twentieth-century Leicester as a case-study in industrial history. The resources relate to four themes: de-industrialization, conservation and regeneration, the life of the factory and the factory community. Making available photographs, maps, newspaper materials and other sources in digital form, the project aims to open up the exploration of these aspects of the history of industrial landscapes to students, historians and a wider public.

In this seminar we will outline the historical rationale for the project and the techniques involved in realising it. There will be opportunities both to engage directly with the materials online and to participate in a larger discussion about the value and uses of this kind of project in digital humanities.
