The course will guide the student into the digital resources for historical studies and the history of the Renaissance in particular. Students have the opportunity to search, interrogate and analyze a direct source, both a document or a narrative text; will be able to use it as a resource for historical research and will be able to work with a team in the web department of an academic publishing house.
The purpose of this course is to give the students the possibility to learn the analysis, synthesis, and multimedia diffusion of Renaissance documents. After a period of theoretical training, students will be able to apply their acquisitions working – remotely or in-person – for a website into three possible sectors:
- Copy editing and translations
- Historical research
- Database management
SRISA is partnering with the University of Florence for the International project CeSecom, a website published by the Florence University Press on the history of Europe and Asia in the middle ages and Renaissance times.
