HIST 446/546: History in the Digital Age, Professor Douglas Seefeldt, 9:00-9:50 am MWF Spring 2016
     Historians, especially those who engage with the public, are increasingly becoming dependent on digital tools for both research and communication. What does it mean to do history in the digital age? How have relationships among teachers, researchers, students, librarians, archivists, curators, and the general public changed because of digital technologies?
This course, open to any major, will explore these questions by blending the theoretical and practical to introduce students to the major themes and developments in digital history. Through lectures, discussions, labs, and a final digital project, students will address key challenges associated with living in the digital age while gaining practical skills and experience useful for considering the future of the past.
