Congratulations on making it to the last full week of classes! Here’s your weekly fix of Digital History content:
- The Digital History working group will have its next meeting on Wednesday 04/28. This week’s discussion will be led by Craig Gill, who will cover network analysis in R. The group is open to anyone interested in learning more about DH tools and collaborating on DH projects! To sign up, email us and we can add you to the DHWG mailing list.
- We’re still looking for more folks to join us on an episode of our newest podcast, The Cutting Room Floor! The show allows historians to share engaging, entertaining, or even puzzling stories found during research that did not make the cut for larger projects. Interested in sharing a story that you’ve found? Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss ideas and set up an episode!
- The Chapel Hill Public Library partnered with local historians to create “I Was Still Singing,” an online exhibit displaying the roles and perspectives of Black women in Chapel Hill-area civil rights movements. The exhibit uses video histories, oral histories, storymapping, and digitized primary source documents to honor Black women’s roles in shaping Chapel Hill’s history.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions about DH or to set up a consultation. We’re always looking for more ways to better serve you and the department–of you have any ideas or suggestions, send us an email!
Have a fantastic week!
The DHL Team (Ash, Craig, Emma, and Gabe)
