thinking about my course

One of the points in the early readings that has stayed with me is the need to have students reflect about how doing history digitally differs from more traditional methods, and how it can change the way we do history. So I’m thinking that my course, which is for undergraduates will have a 3-part structure (with the first part most fleshed out right now):

1. Introductory: What is DH? How does it change history/humanities? This will include readings about DH; intro to various types of projects; explorations & discussions of DH projects; and much discussion/reflection on how these change history/humanities.

2. Learning and playing with some easy DH tools.

3. Working on a class DH project.
