On May 12, 2020 Heike Messemer’s doctoral dissertation „Digitale 3D-Modelle historischer Architektur – Entwicklung, Potentiale und Analyse eines neuen Bildmediums aus kunsthistorischer Perspektive“ was published by arthistoricum.net in Heidelberg.
Auf der 7. Jahrestagung Digital Humanities im deutschsprachigen Raum (DHd) war HistStadt4D mit zwei Vorträgen vertreten. Unter dem Leitthema Spielräume – Digital Humanities zwischen Modellierung und Interpretation fand die DHd 2020 vom 02. bis 06. März in Paderborn statt.
The junior research group UrbanHistory4D hosted the workshop „Research and Education in Urban History in the Age of Digital Libraries“ under the patronage of CIPA on 10-11 Oct ober 2019 in Dresden. Organized by Florian Niebling (Universität Würzburg), Heike Messemer (Universität Würzburg) and Sander Münster (TU Dresden), it was a joint international event of the University of Würzburg and the Technical University Dresden. The workshop took place at the Deutsche Hygiene-Museum in Dresden and was co-located with the Time Machine Conference.
In September the research group was happy to present their recent work at the CIPA 2019 in Ávila. Four of our researchers travelled to the beautiful Ávila, a Spanish fortified city located about 2 hours west of Madrid. The fortification is well known and certainly played a role when Ávila was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985. The imposing Walls of Ávila were built from the 11th to the 14th centuries.
The programme of the CIPA Workshop on Research and Education in Urban History in the Age of Digital Libraries is now online and can be found here. The workshop takes place on October 10-11, 2019 and is co-located with the Time Machine Conference.
