Early modern shipwrecks
Digital Jewish Studies Poster Exhibition
It has been over half a century since father Roberto Busa, who later became the father figure of digital humanities, demonstrated the use of a punched card machine fitted with Hebrew type to the audience of the third World Congress of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem.
Now nearly all scholars work with digital equipment and resources. Scholars and practitioners have have become increasingly involved in creating digital resources and editions, using computational tools to analyse and represent their objects of study, designing digital interfaces and leading digital projects themselves.
For the Seventeenth World Congress of Jewish Studies which took place at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, August 6 - 10, 2017, a committee composed of Sinai Rusinek, Daniel Stoekl and Haim Lapin initiated and organized a digital poster exhibition at the World Congress for Jewish Studies.
We are glad to show here a selection of these posters. Some of the other projects which were presented will be featured on this blog in the coming months.
