DPP Lecture SeriesThe project "Digitising Patterns of Power (DPP): Peripherical Mountains in the Medieval World" (Principal Investigator: Doz. Dr. Mihailo Popović) is funded within the programme "Digital Humanities: Langzeitprojekte zum kulturellen Erbe" of the Austrian Academy of Sciences for the duration of four years (2015-2018). It is hosted at the Institute for Medieval Research (IMAFO) of the same Academy.
DPP unites as a Cluster Project various experts from the fields of Medieval History, Byzantine Studies, Historical Geography, Archaeology, Geography, Cartography, Geographical Information Science (GISc) and Software Engineering. The aims of the project are achieved by the Team Institute for Medieval Research (Austrian Academy of Sciences) in a close cooperation with an external project partner, namely the Team Department of Geography and Regional Research (Prof. Dr. Karel Kriz, University of Vienna).
In order to communicate scholarly results of DPP and related projects to national and international scholars, students as well as the interested public, Mihailo Popović has initiated in January 2017 the DPP Lecture Series in Vienna, which will take place quarterly each year. Our aim is to invite speakers, the papers of which have the potential to foster discussions on new methods and digital tools in the aforesaid academic fields.
