Article
The past decades have changed the way we deal with archives and archival materials. Archives digitised their inventories and part of their collections, but they were joined by many other parties who published archival collections and archive-worthy materials on the web. The information world is in continuous flux, and the developments have made cle...
Article
Full-text available
Digitization and digital methods have had a big impact on migration history and history in general. The dispersed and fragmented nature of migration heritage that involves at least two countries and many cultural heritage institutions make it clear that migration history can be much improved by using digital means to connect collections. This makes...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper we discuss the extension of established methodology with computer vision to make it possible to almost literally see into the blind spots that using established methods on large serial collections only leave. We argue that this method overcomes the dangers of implicit selection that are commonly designated as ‘cherry picking’, or sele...
Book
Wat is de kern van het Nederlandse staatsbestel? Het altijd in coalities resulterende kiesstelsel, of juist het samenspel tussen politiek en monarchie? Het ontbreken van grote gebaren? De sterke focus op het buitenland? De verhouding tussen kerk en staat? Deze en andere kerngegevens zijn verankerd in de grondwet. Dit boek brengt, aan de hand van f...
Chapter
For centuries, paper card indexes facilitated the daily workflows of scholars and information managers such as librarians and archivists. Only recently, however, has their ability to facilitate the management of things in motion, as a result of their own uniform and mobile character, been fully studied in emerging disciplines such as information hi...

Australia is recognised as one of the world’s most culturally and ethnically diverse nations. Immigration has historically played an important role in the nation’s economic, social and cultural development. There is a pressing need to find innovative technological and archival approaches to deal with the challenge to digitally preserve Australia’s...
Article
Full-text available
Migrants all over the world have left multiple traces in different countries, and this cultural heritage is of growing interest to researchers and to the migrant communities themselves. Cultural heritage institutions, however, have dwindling funds and resources to meet the demand for the heritage of immigrant communities to be protected. In this ar...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
For quite some time, humanities scholars have been using digital tools in addition to their established methodology to try and make sense of large and expanding data sources that cannot be handled with traditional methods alone. The digital methods have computer science aspects that may be combined with but do not readily fit into humanities method...
Thesis
Full-text available
In Polder en emigratie the emigration policy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands is analysed as a key component of the social and economic political landscape of the Netherlands between 1945 and 1967. The book shines a spotlight on the way in which various key players from government circles as well as mainstream society join forces after 1945 in ord...

Data Scopes zijn een concept voor de omgang met samengestelde data in een humanities context. Met data scopes willen we bijdragen aan methodologische reflectie op en consolidatie van de verzameling methoden die door velen in de menswetenschappen (vaak in de vorm van tools) al worden gebruikt in aanvulling op de bestaande methoden. Data scopes komen...
Chapter
Full-text available
The focus of this chapter is the state of the art of digitisation of cultural heritage in Australian archives and libraries from a comparative perspective. Globalisation, mobility and the new techniques that spin off from the digital age bring about new possibilities that stimulate and enhance our capacity to ask new questions about how we perceive...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Preparing sources for historical research usually requires making many heterogeneous collections digitally accessible and linking them to compose a multi-faceted and multi-layered resource that supports both distant reading and close reading forms of analysis. Timbuctoo, developed at the Huygens ING, offers a system that makes it possible to model...
Presentation
Full-text available
Wie kent ze niet uit eigen familie of directe omgeving: jongeren of studenten die een 'tussenjaar' nemen en vertrekken naar Australië, Canada of Latijns Amerika om daar te reizen en te werken? Het lijkt een typisch hedendaagse vorm van mobiliteit, die weinig overeenkomsten vertoont met de 'klassieke emigratie' van vlak na de Tweede Wereldoorlog. De...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
This short paper is part of two interlinked short papers which discuss the archival, custodial and digital challenges that impact the discovery, collection, preservation and content management of material and immaterial traces from the past that the Netherlands shares with Australia. (The other short paper is " Developing a Sustainable Model in Mut...
Article
Full-text available
The contributors to this special issue describe the emigration of people from the Netherlands to the most important overseas destinations (the USA, Canada and Australia) in the nineteenth and the twentieth century. Part of the Dutch (overseas) emigrants formed strongly separated communities. Dutch emigrants were also rather invisible. In North Amer...
Article
Full-text available
Traditionally political history tells the factual story of those who are in power and of those who want to be, often accompanied by studies of the formal expressions of power in the state and its institutions. During the past two decades this ‘old’ history of politics has been renewed and enriched by research from the perspective of political cultu...
