Winter 2021.
Thursdays, 10am - 12pm* via Microsoft Teams.

Digital history, the application of new and emerging technologies to the study of history, is an important field that has begun to reshape historical production and scholarship. This graduate level course introduces students to the literature on digital history, and then puts theory into practice by digitally collecting, publishing, and producing new historical knowledge with cutting-edge tools.

* We’ll in general aim for 90 minutes.

A hybrid course!

We’ll be meeting via Microsoft Teams for no more than 120 minutes a week (often less; 90 minutes is a good length for an online discussion), with content delivered beforehand via video and text.

No live info dumps!

A reasonable workload.

There is an ongoing pandemic — baked into the ethos of this course is care.

I will make sure that being remote does not increase your workload, and asnychronous components will give you maximum flexibility.
