Title:The historian - A special user of computational and digital tools? Disintermediation and the discipline-based technological expertise
Author(s):Burcica, Pompilia
Computational tools
Historical craft
Abstract:This poster seeks to harmonize two distinctive paths: computational methods in historical research and the traditional historical craft. I show how the latter manifested itself across time and how it evolved in the current technologically-advanced medium. i also show how intermediaries like librarians and computer scientists see computation in history, yet the two paths remain separate and barely tangible. Through disintermediation, researchers can take charge of their own computational use by making the research goals as central to computational projects and by relying and collaborating without intermediaries with a technical team (IT and database engineers).
