A New Approach to Mapping Jewish History

Start: Nov 17, 2016 06:30 PM


Nicholas de Lange


Thursday November 17th

IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE JEWISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF ENGLAND


de Lange

ArcGIS (Geographic Information Systems) is powerful software which enables specialists, general scholars and indeed the public at large to generate on-line maps of historical topics to their own specifications. It has the potential to revolutionise the way we visualise Anglo-Jewish history. This talk will explain how this new technology can be applied to a range of uses, taking examples from a recent project, “Mapping the Jewish Communities of the Byzantine Empire” (see the project websites mjcb.eu and www.byzantinejewry.net).

Nicholas de Lange is Professor Emeritus of Hebrew and Jewish Studies in the University of Cambridge and an Emeritus Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge. His main area of specialisation is Byzantine Judaism. His latest book is Japheth in the Tents of Shem: Greek Bible Translations in Byzantine Judaism (Tübingen: Mohr Siebeck, 2015).
