UNC History Community,

We hope everyone has had a good start to the semester! This week’s newsletter includes digital storytelling methods, oral history research, and ways for you to get involved with the Digital History Lab!

1. Working Group Meeting: Join the DHL Working Group on Tuesday, August 30 at 5 PM for our first meeting of the semester. Open to historians of all digital skill backgrounds, the DHL Working Group is a space to discuss and workshop digital pedagogical and research methods. Our first meeting will be hybrid. All students and faculty are welcome!

2. Oral History Synchronizer: Dartmouth College has received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to improve the Oral History Metadata Synchronizer. The project, collaboratively worked on by both Dartmouth and the University of Kentucky, aims to make oral history collections and data visualization technology available to researchers across the country. Read the whole story here.

3. Digital Storytelling: Graduate students at Binghamton University in New York have spent the year working in the Digital Humanities Research Institute’s Digital Storytelling Workshop. Activities included “… discussions of storytelling as a pedagogical tool, assignment design, interactive software, oral histories, and making and hosting websites…,” according to Jennifer Micale with BingU News. Read the whole story 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 podcast!

Thanks for reading,

The DHL Team (Cameron, Dustin, Madeleine, & Sarah)
