Engineering Historical Memory (EHM)

Engineering Historical Memory (EHM) is an ongoing initiative supported by about 130 scholars and engineers in collaboration with international cultural institutions and publishers. EHM explores the applicability of digital technologies (e.g., data visualisation, federated searches, sentiment analysis, blockchain) to the advancement of learning in historical sciences. EHM tested the results on web-based applications for maps, travel accounts, chronicles, codices, sites, and paintings focusing on Afro-Eurasia during the transition into modernity.
