Happy Wednesday! We hope midterm season has been treating everyone well and that you are all looking forward to spring break.

1. DHL Working Group: Join the DHL Working Group on Monday, March 21 at 4 PM for a re-introductory meeting. Open to historians of all digital skill backgrounds, the DHL Working Group is a space to discuss and workshop digital pedagogical and research methods. We will meet in-person and via Zoom. Hope to see you there!

2. Digital Events with the Maine Historical Society: The Maine Historical Society, the third ever established in the United States, is turning 200 this year, and to celebrate they have a series of events throughout the year commemorating the state’s past. For those that can’t get to Maine to attend in person, a selection will also be broadcast online via zoom, including “Unpacking the Past: Fashions from the Maine Historical Society Collection” and “American Republics: A Continental History of the United States, 1783-1850.” Read the event list here.

3. Indigenous Histories and Presence in Madison: Kasey Keeler, a professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, created a project documenting the history of the Dejope native community. The digital map aims to “make the Ho-Chunk history of the land that Madison occupies and the Native presence here accessible and engaging.” Read more about the project here.

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!
