This is a brief reminder that the deadline for submitting your application to participate in “Coding the Past: The Challenges and Promise of Large-Scale Cultural Databases” is less than two weeks away!  This project brings together archaeologists, historians and cultural evolutionary theorists for an initial meeting to:

  1. Receive an introduction to a new research tool known as the Database of Religious History;
  2. Get hands-on experience creating entries and using its built-in analytical tools;
  3. Provide feedback on its design and data-gathering approach; and 4) suggest new analyses that could be performed using the database in conjunction with other data sources.

Information about the project and application instructions are available here.
