Who Rebecca Mason (doctoral student, Glasgow University)
What "The History Research Student's Perspective". Students trained in the traditional Humanities techniques for historical research can have a hard time making the transition to new digital techniques. Rebecca Mason will give an account of her own work as a student researching legal records involving early modern Scottish women, and how the data she was collecting from the archive became increasingly difficult to store and make sense of using traditional techniques. Her talk will give a research student's perspective on developing one's own database to answer one's own research questions, without having any background at all in digital techniques.
