HIST 209 Intro. to Digital History

The recent growth of digital history is revolutionizing the way that historians research, teach and interpret the past. Since the 1990s historians and computer scientists have worked hand-in-hand to develop new online tools for archiving data mining, and presenting primary sources and engaging with new audiences. This course gives students the opportunity to develop marketplace skills in web development as well as the application of online software and digital tools for conducting and presenting historical research. We also pay attention to the theoretical and methodological issues pertinent to the practice of doing digital history. (1) 1 Unit
