Invited Talk: "Fear, uncertainty and doubt: doing good research work with partial network data"
Workshop on Digital Methods for Military History
10-11th October 2014
As digital methods and tools become more prominent in the scholarly historical community and the practice of public history, historians have to learn to use these methods effectively. Northeastern University's NUL
ab for Texts, Maps, and Networks, announces a workshop designed to help historians of the military to learn about and use these tools. This workshop is a partnership between the NUL
ab for Texts, Maps, and Networks at Northeastern University, the NEH's Office of Digital Humanities
, and the Society for Military History
This two-day workshop will introduce historians of the military and foreign policy to digital tools and methods, focusing on network analysis and mapping, which are methods particularly suited to the study of the military. Participants will learn about projects that have successfully used these methods, and then they will receive hands-on instruction to help them get started in using these methods themselves.
