We hope you had a great weekend! Here’s this week’s news and updates from the Digital History Lab.
- DHL Co-Director Gabe Moss has released a new podcast, Breaking Point: A History of Panic. Now available on Spotify and Soundcloud, it explores stories of mass hysteria and moral panic in world history. If you’d like to appear on an episode to discuss a historical panic in your own area of expertise, please email Gabe. For more public history projects by UNC graduates, check out the links on the department’s Historians at Work page.
- On March 31, the AHA will hold a virtual panel entitled “Getting Started in Digital History: Pedagogy in the Time of COVID.” Details and registration are here. For more resources on online teaching, check out the AHA Online Teaching Forum. As always, the DHL is available to consult on teaching technology and adjustments to the digital classroom.
- The DHL is starting work on a new podcast, tentatively entitled The Cutting Room Floor. The show provides a platform for historians to share short and engaging stories they find in their research that don’t easily fit into larger projects. We will release more information on the show soon, but if you’re interested in participating, please send us an email!
As always, if you have any questions or suggestions for how the DHL can better serve the department, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gabe, Emma, Craig, and Ash
