Paris Summer School: History of mathematical sciences and digital approaches: the materiality of texts — networks — classifications

Paris from 2 to 6 July 2018, at the Institut de mathématiques de Jussieu – Paris Rive Gauche (UMR 7586 of the CNRS, UPMC, Université Paris-Diderot), on the Jussieu campus, in the heart of the Latin Quarter of Paris.

This international summer school aims at:
  • giving a comprehensive presentation of — and opening discussions on — current opportunities offered by digital technologies: access to original documents, modes of (collaborative) edition, new opportunities to handle and search corpuses;
  • evaluating the impact of digital approaches on the methodology and research practices in the history of science;
  • raising questions on their advantages and limits concerning their actual capacity to deliver new results and open new research perspectives.

In addition to classes and lectures, workshops will be organized to enable participants to test approaches and tools on their own corpus and research data.

The speakers will include specialists in the digital humanities as well as historians of mathematics who use digital tools.

Housing and lunches will be free, offered by the summer school.

Registration is free of charge but mandatory.
