CfP: Unlocking sources. The First World War online & Europeana

The projects "Europeana Collections 1914-1918", "European Film Gateway 1914", and "Europeana 1914-1918" have digitized hundreds of thousands of sources from archives, museums, libraries, and individuals. These will, for the first time ever, be made available to the general public for free via the virtual library Europeana.

The completion of these three projects in 2014 offers the opportunity for a presentation and discussion of new digital offerings around the First World War and Europeana. The two-day conference at the Berlin State Library "Unlocking Sources - The First World War online & Europeana" will take the opportunity to discuss the mediation of history online in 2014. The international conference will be jointly organised by the project co-ordinating institutions Berlin State Library, the Department of History at the Humboldt University in Berlin / Clio-online, the German Film Institute - DIF e.V., and the Europeana Foundation. It will address interested scientific audiences and the public.

The conference is focused on the use of digital resources: How do digitized materials fit into research and teaching? How can different online activities contribute to the "digital humanities"? What ideas for the teaching of history in schools, museums, and media are developed? What are the strengths, and what are the weaknesses of the existing and newly created offers? In addition to the critical discussion and reflection at the panels, innovative projects approaching the theme of the "First World War" by using digital forms can present their results to a broader public.

Scientists, teachers, representatives of archives, libraries and museums are invited to reflect on questions of mediating history online and to present their research projects, course offerings / materials or digital sources in a 20-minute talk (English, German). Please send in an abstract (one page max.) by 15 July 2013. In addition, projects and ideas for projects can be presented as a poster or a presentation stand.
