Workshop – Database History
Thursday, 04 July 2019, 10:00 - 18:00 Organized by subproject A01: „Digitally networked media between specialization and universalization“

In preparation for Phase II of the Media of Cooperation project, this is a small and informal event to explore connections between scholars interested in the history of database systems. We are particularly concerned with the idea of database systems as infrastructure and as enablers of specific forms of digital materiality.
