A Digital History of Knowledge: The Search for Patterns and Principles from 1800 - 2000

How can the history of science and humanities be integrated within a unified historical framework? What kind of history of knowledge do we get if we decenter both the natural sciences and Europe as object of focus? How can digital tools and techniques be used to write a long term history of knowledge?
