Digital Projects Lightning Round

Saturday, January 3, 2015: 12:30 PM-2:00 PM
Conference Room I (Sheraton New York, Lower Level)

This lightning round invites historians working on digital projects to share their work in a series of five-minute presentations. Digital technologies have expanded the reach of scholarship in the way scholars communicate their research to an audience and present findings, as well as influencing the questions they ask in planning a research project. Text analysis, data and text mining, mapping, data visualization, and a variety of other digital methods and tools make forms of research beyond the traditional text-based article or monograph possible, while also encouraging scholars to consider questions of data storage, visual presentation, and user engagement. Let us know what research questions you’re asking, how you’re using digital tools to tackle them, and demo your project.

If you are working on a digital project and would like to present, e-mail an abstract of no more than 80 words to Stephanie Kingsley ( by Monday, December 29. Please include the title of your presentation, your Twitter handle if you would like us to put it in the program, and use “Digital Projects Lightning Round Submission” as your email subject line.
