In order to launch the Observatory of Written Heritage | “Low Countries” contact group’s activities, a webinar has already been organized in May 2021. Now that the relaxation of the Covid-19 rules allow for in-person meetings, we are able to organize a meeting at KBR on 23rd and 24th November. This will not be a conference, but a meeting with working groups deliberating on the need of such a network, the expectations for it, and the possible activities it could undertake in the next future.
If you are a librarian, an archivist, a written heritage preservation or digitization specialist, a Digital Humanities specialist, a researcher or a teacher involved in the field of written cultures in the area in question, and a representative of your institution, unit, laboratory, etc., you are friendly invited to participate in the working days (there may be several participants for each institution, depending on their skills).
