Digital tools, technologies, and applications have the potential to transform the ways in which historians do their work. In this class, we will explore the ways in which digital tools, technologies, and applications can change our current intellectual, professional, and personal landscapes. We are going to do so from two directions:
First, we’re going to read about, explore, research, analyze, argue about, and critique the ways in which digital tools, technologies, and spaces have transformed (and are continually transforming) work in the history.
Second, we’re going to create, design, craft, mash, mix, and produce using digital tools, technologies, and spaces, and reflect on the ways in which such practices enhance, inform, or change our work in history.
