AHIS596: Practicum in Digital History

Digital history is both a medium and a method: as a medium, it presents history on the web and as a method it makes new modes of historical analysis possible. In this graduate level course, students will gain both an overview of recent theoretical works informing DH work, as well as hands-on experience with DH as both a medium and a method. Together we will work through real historical data and frame a data focused, argument driven project using digital analysis tools.

Online & Async

Work at your own pace, with help available when you need it. We’ll have an optional meeting once a week.

Hands on

2020 was weird and bad. Hopefully 2021 will be better, but if it’s not, I will work with you.
