Symposium report: 'ICT in de mediŽvistiek. Het memoria-onderzoek in Nederland'


During the symposium 'ICT in de mediŽvistiek. Het memoria-onderzoek in Nederland', held on January 9th 2009, various examples were given, in which IT applications secured a place for themselves in medieval studies in the Netherlands and Belgium, and in memoria research in particular. Given the large number of participants and the interesting discussions, this is a subject which appealed to many. Part of the papers held that day have since then been published on the website of DANS.
