Summer School 2013: Historical Sources & Transnational Approaches to European History

The CENDARI project, in collaboration with the COST Action: IS 1005, ‘Medioevo Europeo: Medieval Studies and Technological Resources’ (http://www.medioevoeuropeo.eu), will host the first of three annual CENDARI Summer Schools in Florence, Italy from the 22nd to the 26th July 2013. The Summer School, entitled Historical Sources & Transnational Approaches to European History, will invite participants to address specifically how CENDARI aims to resolve the difficulties of historical research through the application of digital technologies and methods.

Sessions will apply the concept of ‘transnational moments’ to examine ways in which historical research is complicated by the nature of material records of the past. The Summer School will provide a context for the various collections-level challenges to transnational history, such as how to identify sources that have become ‘hidden’ or lost through accidents of history. Researchers will examine the linguistic, quantitative and methodological challenges facing them today.


Hugh Denard, Graham Jefcoate and Jay Winter will all deliver keynote addresses during the summer school.

  • Hugh Denard: “Digital History - a paradigm shift?”
  • Graham Jefcoate: “How sources become 'institutionalised'. From items, objects and fonds to metadata records”
  • Jay Winter: “The undetermined nature of transnational history”
