Religious Studies in the Digital Age. Aligning Research Methodologies and National Strategies

27 February 2023 - 04 March 2023

Marco Büchler and Alexandra Nusser (INFAI) together with Francesca Cadeddu (Fscire) are coordinating an event on Religious Studies in the digital age, which will be hosted by Villa Vigoni and take place February 27 to March 4, 2023.


The rise of the digital age poses three challenges to scholars in Religious Studies: 1) How to deal with data that are and will be available digitally or physically at the same time; 2) How to make efficient use of digitally available material; 3) How to do research exploiting the new digital options.

The seminar is an opportunity to think about models to make data repositories and their collections available to a larger community and contribute to and profit from Big Humanities Data as a new paradigm, while also discussing opportunities and risks of Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining for the field.
