Call for Papers

Data Science and History: Practicing and Theorizing Data-Driven Inquiries
into the Past

In the last decade historians have witnessed a proliferation of digitized
and born-digital data sets. Historical data sets encourage data-driven
inquiries into the past, as well as the integration of data science methods
into historical research. This collection of papers will offer a panorama
of the current state of the art in the application of data science methods
in historical research; it will be submitted to the Digital Humanities
Quarterly (DHQ) as a special issue.

We specifically invite contributions that analyze data sets and integrate
complex models of data science into historical inquiry. We also seek
contributions that discuss the development of new data sets and research

We encourage contributions between 5000 and 8000 words, though shorter
papers (3000 - 5000) will also be considered.

Submission timeline:

- 15 July 2023: submit an abstract of your paper (max. 500 words) through
the following link:

- 15 August 2023:  Notification of acceptance and submission of accepted
abstracts to DHQ

- 10 December 2023:  submit your complete paper (submission link TBA)

We aim to publish the special issue in the summer of 2024.
