Online Events in June

 

The Gardens Trust
Other Voices in Garden History - Contested Landscapes

7 June 6 – 7.30pm, £5
The ninth in a 10-part lecture series, celebrating the voices beginning to be heard, online once a week on Mondays. This series of illustrated lectures will explore the impact and legacy of empire, colonialism and enslavement on western garden and landscape history. Our aim is to bring back some of the voices usually absent from this history, to identify and fill gaps in our collective knowledge, and to explore new ways of engaging with the whole history of gardens, landscapes and horticulture.

UCL Centre for Digital Humanities  
Uncovering Digital History’s forgotten roots

9 June, 5 – 6.30pm free via Zoom
This talk has two parts. It will first attempt to frame what a history of digital history might look like, by focusing on hybridity as a key characteristic of historical research, seen as some form of integrating newly emerging tools, technologies, materials, and/or practices in historical research, and mapped and qualified according to the main phases of historical research.
The paper will then proceed to outline what groundwork is necessary to explore digital history’s forgotten roots: a basic overview of the field’s different spatio-temporal trajectories and the networks of computing historians in the pre-PC and early PC period.
