A New Age for Social Sciences and Humanities

As a European initiative, time machine has been able to build a large interdisciplinary network that operates internationally and locally (local time machines). Besides universities, many GLAM institutions and companies are involved. One focus is on 3D reconstructions of cities that are enriched with source material.
My presentation will also focus on mobile objects, works of art and artefacts of all kinds, which can be given history and attention through digitalization.
