Digital History 1.5: Historical Practice between Normal and Paradigmatic Digital Science

Most historians today are "digital historians 1.0" as their normal research practice include the use of digital methods, sources and tools such as search engines, GoogleBooks, online journals, databases. etc. But few have gone as far as being "digital historians 2.0" and do historical research by writing programs or use advanced and specialized quantitative calculations and visualization tools and methods. This presentation will explore and think about the methodological and conceptual space in between—digital history 1— by using an ongoing historical research project that is using digitalized newspaper archives to understand the international and Swedish emergence of terrorism 1848–1914.
