The impact of digitisation on research into 18th and 19th Century Britain

Organised jointly by the British Library and JISC.

British Library Conference Centre, Euston Road, London
10.00am – 4.00pm

  • Explore the impact of the large scale digitisation of newspapers
  • Consider the effect that this has had on research and researchers
  • Question the implied changes to research methodologies

Not only has the digitisation of historical newspapers made it easier to discover information about events from the past, but the way in which they have been digitised makes it possible to discover how those events were represented, debated and sold as news. This conference will debate current limitations of this digitisation as well as opportunities for future development.

Speakers will include:
Professor Laurel Brake,
Professor Tim Hitchcock,
 Professor Robert Shoemaker,
Professor Miles Taylor
Dr James Mussell.
