My name is Harri Kiiskinen and this is my work-oriented blog. It’s written from the viewpoint of a historian, who is also partly archaeologist, very interested in computers and a cautious advocate of quantitative methods in historical sciences. I do not advocate any form of social science history, nor the histoire serielle type of approach, but am convinced, that one can use quantitative approaches in order to understand the past even after the cultural turn. Or perhaps, especially after the cultural turn.
What this blog contains, are personal comments on various practical issues I’ve worked with. Not so much history for the nerds, more some nerdisms for historians. I’m also quite convinced, that Internet has already enough public, online resources for people interested in history, but altogether too little to offer for historian interested in the use of computers in their own work.
