Digital, Spatial, Visual, and Oral Histories

HIS 278

Info tab content
The course focuses on digital history as a way to integrate different unconventional and conventional sources and approaches especially oral, spatial (maps), images (photos) and netbased data. Digital history allows for the combination of, for example, spatial history (through the use of Geographic Information Systems or GIS) with oral history in a single multi-dimensional, multimedia, and interactive platform (a blog or webpage). Oral history can be used to recapture the history of individuals, groups, and phenomena that conventional written sources (written by the elite) have erased.
