The second annual symposium on Digitizing Enlightenment – the first was held at Western Sydney University in July 2016 – will be held in Nijmegen on June 15 and 16, 2017. The provisional conference programme is now available.
Last July, the MEDIATE project members visited Western Sydney University for the first Digitizing Enlightenment symposium, followed by the George Rudé seminar. During both the Digitizing Enlightenment symposium and the George Rudé seminar, the project leaders of the Western Sydney-based MPCE – FBTEE project and MEDIATE publicly announced their plans to build a fully collaborative database system, pooling the data from both projects and bringing in further book history sources. In follow-up meetings in Paris and Nijmegen, they drew up a knowledge exchange programme of visits for the coming years and further scoped out the mutual conceptual and digital development of the two projects.
The second Digitizing Enlightenment symposium is scheduled to take place in Nijmegen on June 15-16, 2017.
