Through hands-on workshops students will be introduced to concepts of data mining, indexing, annotating, and the steps involved in working online with new media. Apart from introducing students to the contemporary theoretical breakthrough in understanding form and meaning, the Winter School also introduces students to cutting-edge modern technologies. With a faculty drawn from across the world, the course aims to set standards in the field through discussions on methodology, archiving standards, ethical issues, and forms of dissemination.
The faculty includes eminent oral historians from India and abroad who will present latest research approaches through examples from their own work.
