Issues, Practices and Perspectives

A two-day conference

Anfang 8.6.2015
Ende 10.6.2015
Ort Aarhus University, Denmark

Zweitägige Konferenz

In March 2014, the web celebrated its twenty-fifth birthday. This vast information resource is of enormous importance to scholars, both as a primary source and as a means of networking and communication. It is, however, strikingly ephemeral, and much important data has already been lost. The archiving of this vast range of material, so that it is accessible to both contemporary and future researchers, increasingly occupies national memory institutions, and researchers are also beginning to realise and explore its value.

This conference seeks to explore the potential of web archives for scholarly use, to highlight innovative research, to investigate the challenges and opportunities of working with the archived web, to identify opportunities for incorporating web archives in learning and teaching, and to discuss and inform archival provision.
This multi-disciplinary conference is aimed at scholars, web archiving institutions, web archivists, curators, IT-developers, companies and public institutions interested in web archiving and research using web archives. In conjunction with the overall topic of web archives, general areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

             • the history(ies) of the web
             • the changing structure of the web
             • material culture and display in a digital context
             • political and literary reputation online
             • public engagement online
             • patterns of culture online
             • networks of social communication
             • the evolution of language on the web
             • the history of institutions and organisations online
             • the history of social and political movements on the web
             • the relationship between image, sound and text online
             • the web as a forum for commemoration
             • health and education online
             • using web archives in the classroom
             • national/international boundaries online
             • approaches to web archiving
             • research methods for studying the archived web
             • providing access to the archived web This list is not exhaustive,
