.hist 2006: History in the Net(work) — Practices, Possibilities,
Deadline for CfP: 4 September 2005
Conference will take place from 22 to 24 February 2006
The German history internet project Clio-online , in conjunction with the Humboldt University Berlin and
the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences, is pleased to announce
the conference .hist 2006: History in the Net(work) — Practices,
Possibilities, Visions. The aim of the conference is to examine the
growing importance of new media for historical scholarship in both
senses of the word “network”: as a technical infrastructure enabling
new forms of interaction, of research, of communication, and of
publication; and as the harbinger of a new form of social and
scholarly space, which, through adaption, experience, and practice,
is beginning to displace the old.

The conference will continue the dialog between historians,
archivists, librarians, and other persons working and thinking at the
juncture between history and new media begun three years ago during
the conference .hist 2003. It seeks to act as a forum to examine the
best practice models, present the newest technical developments, and,
most importantly, to reflect on the state of the art.
Working languages of the conference are English and German. Papers
can be presented in either language but, due to cost considerations,
simultaneous translation cannot be provided.
The full Call for papers (in German) can be found on our homesite,
