Archives Unleashed Cohorts (2022-2023)


Big Data, in the form of born-digital historical sources, is reshaping the humanities and social sciences. The sheer amount of cultural information that is generated and, crucially, preserved every day in electronic form, presents exciting new opportunities for historians, political scientists, sociologists, linguistics, computer scientists, and other scholars. Much of this information is captured within web archives, created by organizations such as the Internet Archive and many other libraries.

Following the successful launch of the inaugural cohort (2021-2022), the Archives Unleashed project is pleased to announce we will be hosting a second round of cohorts from 2022-2023.
