UNC History Community,
We hope you all are doing well this week. Here’s your fix of digital history:
- Looking to get started on your own digital history project and not sure where to start? Just curious about the world of digital humanities? Daniel Cohen and Roy Rosenzweig created a free, online version of their book Digital History: A Guide to Gathering, Preserving, and Presenting the Past on the Web that can help you with all of your DH needs.
- The Inclusive Historian’s Handbook writes about the importance of digital history in “help[ing] to access and share marginalized or silenced voices and to incorporate them into our work in ways not possible in print or the space of an exhibition gallery,” in this 2019 article.
- Take some time this week to explore the digital history collections of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, with topics ranging from women’s suffrage to religious history to Puerto Rican heritage in Philadelphia.
Make sure to contact the Digital History Lab if there are any skills you want to learn, need support with your own digital history projects, or are interested in our blog and/or podcast!
Thanks for reading,
The DHL Team (Ash, Cameron, Emma, & Craig)
