        Subject: An IHR Workshop: People of Medieval Scotland Database Workshop


The People of Medieval Scotland (PoMS) database is one of the highly structured prosopographical databases created by a partnership with King's College London Department of Digital Humanities with, in this case, colleagues at Glasgow University and King's itself. (see http://www.poms.ac.uk).  The Institute of Historical Research (University of London) is sponsoring a free workshop next week (20th July: 11 am to 3.30, including lunch) that explores how structured data, as presented in PoMS, can be used by historians interested in historical charters.  The workshop is described as follows:

-----------------------------------------------------------------
The People of Medieval Scotland 1093-1314 database (PoMS) (www.poms.ac.uk) is not only a resource for Scottish historians. It includes information from over 5300 charters (broadly defined), which means that anyone seeking to explore the potential of this kind of source material for their research can do so quickly through PoMS, and then apply these insights to a different but comparable corpus of charters. This is possible because PoMS provides information in a structured way about individuals and their interactions exactly as this is reflected in the documents, paying close attention to their form and essential features. Not only can research that could take months be accomplished in minutes, but sophisticated queries can be tested. PoMS also includes innovative ways of visualising results through maps and sociograms.

Potential topics that could be explored in less than an hour are the role of aristocratic women in landholding, types of renders associated with hereditary tenure, the rise of a self-conscious knightly class, the use of charters, the growing significance of coinage, the employment of university graduates, patterns of patronage and networks of laity associated with monasteries. All questions can be pursued both chronologically and geographically.

This workshop will introduce the database through explanations and hands-on practical activities. The workshop is free of charge with lunch provided. Please bring a laptop.

The workshop will be led by some of those who have designed and used PoMS ...
