Faculty and students are creating so many amazing digital and public history projects here at UNC. To that end, The Digital History Lab has created the DH Showcase blog to promote some of these amazing projects. Here, professors, graduate students, and undergraduates will share their projects, describe its goals, discuss which digital tools they used, and share ideas about how this project serves as a model. Our goal is to create a platform for creators to share their work and for others to think about the possibilities of digital and public history projects in their scholarly work, classrooms, and beyond.
