“Fostering New Models of Historical Scholarship.” Douglas Seefeldt, an history professor who has taught undergraduate and graduate digital history courses since 2002 at the University of Virginia and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will discuss the challenges and successes involved in teaching digital history at the graduate level. He will provide an overview of how digital scholarship produced by graduate students can be used to advance their research while also providing them the opportunity to make valuable contributions to the larger scholarly discourse through the rapidly developing genre of digital history. Finally, Seefeldt will examine changes in scholarly communication and the ways that educating graduate students in digital history theory and practice enables them to become an integral part of the process of that change.
