|HIST 305 - DISCOVERING DIGITAL HISTORY|
Advances in computer technology have changed the way society interacts and how we interact with the past. While at its most basic, digital history involves using computer technology to study and present the past, it has far greater potential to change the way we study, the questions we ask, and the ways that we present our results to the public. This course provides an introduction to the field of digital history, and hands-on experience with digital tools to create public history projects accessible on the web. Students will explore primary sources materials, determine the best way to present them online, and create interpretive history sites using digital tools to present their findings to the public. Students will use course readings and discussions to learn about topics such as digital access, copyright, intellectual property, metadata, information abundance, and how the Web changes the relationship between historians and their audience.
• This course includes a weekly practical lab and homework and will require the use of computers with access to the internet.
• Some research off-campus may be required for class assignments.
