We hope you’re doing well, despite it all! Here are this week’s announcements from the Digital History Lab.
- The first (virtual) meeting of the Digital History Working Group is this Thursday 9/24 at 4 pm–if you’re interested in this or future meetings and haven’t RSVP’d, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Many thanks to those of you who’ve expressed interest in the Omeka workshop the DHL is coordinating with the Davis Library Research Hub–more info on dates and times will be coming soon. If you are interested in learning to use Omeka for public scholarship, teaching, or research, and haven’t yet let us know, please email email@example.com..
- For an example of a powerful history project built with a version of Omeka, check out A Journal of the Plague Year, an ever-expanding history of the COVID-19 pandemic from Arizona State University.
- Looking for online exhibits and source collections to use with your students in remote learning? Good options include the Digital Public Library of America and Google Arts and Culture.
- A recent article from InsideHigherEd gives helpful tips on implementing blogging assignments.
- The DHL continues to seek contributors to our history and popular media podcast and to our blog on teaching in the age of COVID.
As always, let us know if you have questions or suggestions for how we may better serve the department!
