Getting Started in Digital History Workshop
For the fourth year in a row, the AHA will be running the Getting Started in Digital History workshop immediately prior to the start of the meeting. Last year brought historians with an interest in using digital tools and resources together with experts in a range of digital-history methodologies. The workshop this year will include both beginner and intermediate hands-on sessions. Planned introductory sessions include tackling big-data projects, digital pedagogy, an introduction to mapping, and a session that introduces attendees to a user-friendly entry-level toolkit for text analysis, timelines, and mapping. Intermediate sessions include network analysis, 3D imaging in history pedagogy and research, and a syllabus workshop on integrating digital history methodology into every facet of your course. Our plenary lunch session, “Table Talks,” gives attendees the chance to network and chat in an informal setting with fellow attendees and session leaders as we dig deeper into digital history.
Registration for the workshop can be purchased in advance through the registration form for $35, $5 for students. Registration includes a boxed lunch. Please note that you do not need to pick up your badge before attending the pre-meeting workshop. We look forward to seeing you there.
