ReSAW: Research Infrastructure for the Study of Archived Web Materials

Historians based in Europe in particular should know about ReSAW, a Europe-wide network of scholars and institutions interested in the archived web. Co-ordinated by Niels Brügger (Aarhus University, NetLab & the Centre for Internet Studies), at present it is largely sustained by the efforts of its members, but there are plans for expansion in the next few years.

The next ReSAW event is a major conference on Web Archives as Scholarly Sources: Issues, Practices and Perspectives, which will take place in Denmark in June, and at which both Peter and Ian will be presenting papers. Booking is now open.

As well as the conference, there is a cluster of pilot research projects which may be of interest to historians. These include examinations of patterns of commemoration online, through to the traces left by the Eurovision Song Contest.
