Archives Unleashed Datathon (applications due 1 November)

The World Wide Web has had a profound impact on how we research and understand the past. The sheer amount of cultural information that is generated and, crucially, preserved every day in electronic form, presents exciting new opportunities for researchers. Much of this information is captured within web archives.

The project team invites archivists, researchers (from the humanities, social sciences, and beyond), librarians, computer scientists, and web archiving enthusiasts to join us over the course of two days to collaboratively work with web collections and explore cutting-edge research tools through hands-on experience.

The Archives Unleashed Team has partnered with Columbia University Libraries to host the fourth Archives Unleashed datathon. The Columbia Center for Human Rights Documentation & Research mentioned that their Human Rights Web Archive will be part of this project.
