Full-day workshop: 9:00 am – 6:00 pm, Thursday, September 13th, 2018
We now have access to two decades of web archives, collected in different ways and at different times, which constitute an invaluable resource for the study of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Researchers are only just beginning to explore the potential of these vast archives, and to develop the theoretical and methodological frameworks within which to study them, but recognition of that potential is becoming ever more widespread. This workshop seeks to explore the value of web archives for scholarly use, to highlight innovative research, to investigate the challenges and benefits of working with the archived web, to identify opportunities for incorporating web archives in learning and teaching, and to discuss and inform archival provision in all senses.
Submission deadline: Friday 15th June 2018
