Turning the Page: Jewish Print Cultures & Digital Humanities

An EAJS Roundtable

6–7 February 2017, Universiteit van Amsterdam

Convenors: Dr Andrea Schatz (King’s College London), Professor Irene Zwiep (University of Amsterdam), Professor Emile Schrijver (Jewish Historical Museum)

The Roundtable will provide time, space and structure for a pioneering attempt to synchronize research agendas in Jewish Studies and the Digital Humanities with regard to early modern and modern Jewish print cultures. Jewish Studies and Digital Humanities scholars will discuss opportunities and challenges arising from the new technologies for the textual, cultural and social analysis of Jewish printed sources. Building on the international conference “On the Same Page: Digital Approaches to Hebrew Manuscripts”, held at King’s College London in 2015, the “Roundtable” will support the formulation of research agendas in Jewish Studies that are informed by ongoing developments in the Digital Humanities, and it will encourage research in the Digital Humanities that responds to new directions in Jewish Studies.
