1st International Workshop

Digitising Patterns of Power (DPP):
Theory and Practice in Historical Geography and Digital Humanities
in Vienna

We are very much looking forward to our first International Workshop of DPP, "Theory and Practice in Historical Geography and Digital Humanities", which will take place on 28-29 September 2016 at the Institute for Medieval Research, Hollandstraße 11-13, 1020 Vienna, and we are really delighted to give you a preview on our preliminary program with renowned national and international speakers.

The first day of the workshop, 28 September, will be divided into two parts: The first part will be dedicated to "Power and Space", the second part of this day will deal with "Realisation: Technical Aspects and Similar Projects". On the second day, 29 September, our focus will be put on "Environmental Studies".

In the course of the workshop there will also be three public lectures on the two crucial themes of the meeting, "Power and Space" and "Environmental Studies", and at the end of the workshop we would like to give you an overview about "Historical Geography" – 50 years Tabula Imperii Byzantini (TIB) at the Austrian Academy of Sciences", because the TIB celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016. Moreover, the TIB was included into the exquisite scheme of Long-term-Projects at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in 2015, and in the same year the project was honoured by getting a membership of the Union Académique Internationale in Brussels.

Within the framework of this workshop we would like to present to you our project DPP, its case studies, database, software and its first results in greater detail and we anticipate a joint and fruitful discussion on methodological issues.
