Making Social Inequality Tangible: Mapping Historical Leiden 1557–1894

Join us for the second in our series of Lunchtime speakers (2019-2020) on research topics in Digital Humanities. Especially, of interest to Master students. 

The ongoing project Mapping Historical Leiden has successfully pinpointed series of historical and archaeological registers, making possible the visualization of the spatial imprint of social inequality. While traditional historical studies focus on mapping tax paid per district, this presentation uses the concept residential segregation in terms that contemporaries experienced, such as population density, odor-producing trades, type of houses, water facilities and pubs.

 

To be held in the Huizinga Conference Room 2.60 from 12:00 (noon) - 13:00.
