Researchers are only just beginning to explore the potential of these vast archives, and to develop the theoretical and methodological frameworks within which to study them, but recognition of that potential is becoming ever more widespread. This workshop seeks to explore the value of web archives for scholarly use, to highlight innovative research, to investigate the challenges and benefits of working with the archived web, to identify opportunities for incorporating web archives in learning and teaching, and to discuss and inform archival provision in all senses
1) Work presenting the state of the field and discussing the opportunities and challenges of using this new kind of primary source for research. This may include demonstrations of existing web archives.
2) Presentations of ground-breaking Digital Humanities research drawing on web archives. These case studies will illustrate a range of different approaches, from small-scale analyses of individual websites to large-scale investigations of entire domains. Other studies will showcase innovative combinations of quantitative and qualitative research methods.
