HIS301 Making History in the Digital Age


Digital technologies and social networks are rapidly and deeply changing the work of professional historians, and our understanding of the past. Throughout the semester you will learn how to create, develop and review your own digital history project. This should be published online, and represent a key component of your professional portfolio. The course will provide you with a critical understanding of the major practical, methodological and theoretical issues to consider when working on a digital project that is creative and engaging, but also feasible, ethical and historically accurate.
