Travelogues: Perceptions of the Other 1500–1876 – A Computerized Analysis
This interdisciplinary and international project focuses on German language travelogues in the collections of the Austrian National Library, covering the period from 1500 to 1876. In order to analyze perceptions of “the other” and “the orient” in a large-scale text corpus, algorithms for the semi-automatized search for, and evaluation of, digitally available texts are being created.

Res Obscura: Seven Weeks to Venice: History Through Isochronic Maps
Historians love maps, but we don't always use them to their full potential. I'm as guilty of this as anyone; for my own book, I'm probably going to keep things cartographically simple, like most other academic historians. via Pocket

Early Modern Mobility | Research Group at Stanford University
During the early modern period (1500-1800), individuals and communities experienced dramatic changes in communication and transportation, establishing practices, institutions, and infrastructures that opened up new political and economic possibilities, and changed the way people understood the world. This multi-year collaboration will support a transregional study of mobility, incorporating multiple languages and national historiographies.

Programme – Mobility & Space in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe
The application of spatial paradigms to the study of late medieval and early modern societies is now well underway. In contrast, the so-called ‘mobility turn’ has struggled to find its way from the social sciences to the humanities and particularly to disciplines concerned with the study of the past. This conference proposes to bring the two together by focusing on how everyday mobility contributed to the shaping of late medieval and early modern spaces, and how spatial frameworks affected the movement of people in pre-modern Europe.

Orbis-in-a-Box | kgeographer
In recent days, a conversation has been renewed about the prospects for an “Orbis-in-a-Box” platform (OIB) for simulating historical movement across multi-modal transport networks. The idea holds great interest for me, and this post is a hasty “my two cents.” via Pocket
