Resource: Clio Wired I – Theory and Practice of Digital History (Syllabus)

Course Details – Clio Wired I — Fall 2012.

This course is designed to introduce history graduate students to the theories and methods of digital history. Over the last 14 years (check out the syllabus from 1998), the course has prepared a generation of graduate students to do cutting edge historical work in a digital environment, using digital tools and methods. Through the semester we will pursue both the technical and theoretical aspects of digital history. This means that our work will include a combination of readings in the field, assessments of existing digital sites and tools, and hands on work with those tools. In the end, you will be equipped to attack your own digital history projects.
