What does it mean to practice history in the digital age? How are digital technologies shaping the way we conceptualise the past, design and conduct historical research, and communicate our findings? What does digital history offer in terms of innovative and substantive new ways of understanding the past, and how has it changed the way society ‘consumes’ the past?
This course explores the expanding landscape of digital history from the perspectives of both theory and practice. The course is built around three main threads. The first-- the pedagogy of digital history-- explores how digital technologies have impacted the production, consumption, and preservation of 'the past' in modern society, and the wider theoretical and methodological issues facing historical study in a digital age. A second-- doing research in a digital environment-- focuses on the development of skills and abilities in using digital tools and the Internet in historical research, while the third-- producing history in a digital world--will give students the opportunity to apply digital methods to their own research, and experience in writing and producing history for the web through the design and execution of a small web-based project.
