Meeting 'Q&A with citizen scientists' in the (pilot-)project 'Transcription and Annotation'

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOther eventSocietal


During this meeting, the project team members of 'First-Hand Accounts of War: War letters (1935-1950) from NIOD digitized spoke to the citizen scientists working in the project. We discussed the process of manual transcription and annotation of historical war letters. The participants discussed technical aspects of their work, but we created also space for reflection on emotional aspects of working with historical egodocuments from times of war, mass violence, and persecution.
