Dear all,

The program for our workshop "Jesuit early modern science in a digital 
perspective. The Jesuit Science Network" in Wuppertal is now available. 
The workshop will take place at Wuppertal University at the end of this 
month, Nov 26+27, in room K.11.07. You can find a description and the 
program of the workshop below and download the poster from 
http://www.izwt.uni-wuppertal.de/fileadmin/izwt/Tagungen_Workshops/WS_15-16/WupNov2015Poster.pdf.

Best regards,

Workshop description

In recent years, an ever growing number of scholars in the humanities 
have realized the benefits they can gain from using digital methods in 
their work. This holds particularly true when it comes to dealing with 
large amounts of similarly structured information, as is the case in the 
study of early modern Jesuit science: biographical information of the 
involved actors, bibliographical information of published scientific 
works and unofficial manuscripts, chronologies of colleges and their 
scientific chairs, and so on. In order to record, categorize, and then 
map out all this data in a sensible way, it would only seem obvious to 
use computers, thus allowing for truly comprehensive studies to be made.

In our workshop "Early modern Jesuit science in a digital perspective - 
The Jesuit Science Network", we want to discuss such digital approaches 
in practice. As a particular example, we want to present the titular 
Jesuit Science Network (JSN), a biographical database on Jesuit scholars 
in early modern science that is currently in its last stages of 
development at Wuppertal University. After completion, it will contain 
around 1000 entries and will be put online for other researchers to use 
(expected launch mid 2016). Aside from discussing the JSN, the workshop 
also wants to give opportunities to address other digital methods and 
how the study of early modern Jesuit science can benefit from them.
