Please find below the message from the organisers:
After a great deal of deliberation, we have reluctantly decided to postpone the conference “Datafication in the Historical Humanities: Reconsidering Traditional Understandings of Sources and Data,” originally scheduled to take place at the German Historical Institute in Washington, DC from December 9-11, 2021. Our new dates for the conference will be June 2 to June 4, 2022.
Conditions for travel between the United States and Europe remain unclear in the near future. Despite plans announced by the U.S. government for resuming international travel, the fact that precise regulations are still being formulated has created a degree of uncertainty which has not made it feasible to move forward with holding the conference this year. Although we still plan to hold the conference in a hybrid format, we are convinced that we cannot plan a successful event when there is still some degree of uncertainty about whether half of the participants will be able to attend in person.
We hope that you understand our decision and that this rescheduling will be compatible with your schedule next year. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jana Keck, email@example.com or Atiba Pertilla, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best wishes also from Andreas Fickers (University of Luxemburg), Zephyr Frank (Stanford University), Torsten Hiltmann (Humboldt University), Mills Kelly (George Mason University), and Simone Lässig (German Historical Institute),
