UNC History Community,
Happy Monday! Here’s your fix of digital history for the week:
- The National Museum of African American History & Culture has launched a new digital Searchable Museum. Their first exhibit is “Slavery & Freedom,” which explores the history of slavery in the United States through videos, maps, and accompanying audio.
- Buncombe Register of Deeds Drew Reisinger has created “As Long as the Grass Shall Grow,”a digital project that documents the history of Native Americans in the area and the formation of the Asheville, NC area.
- Curious how to format your dissertation in a new and unique way? More students are turning towards digital dissertations to allow for a more visual and interactive experience. One student completed her digital history dissertationin 2017 and was interviewed by the American History Association on her experience.
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,
