  • Description: Dr. Heidi Tworek presents History Lab highlights from the seminar HIST 490, a highly collaborative, student-driven course that enables the class to develop and implement digital projects on the history of news. Digitization and computer technology are necessary tools that are used as sources to access, catalogue, and analyze news. Tworek demonstrates how the class combines digital techniques with the history of news and examines why particular stories made it to print over others. Practitioners and students of digital history will acquire skills in digital databases and analysis, mapping techniques and oral presentation. This seminar will include time for question and answer. Please bring your laptop.

    The Pixelating Mixer is an opportunity for DH scholars across campus to meet colleagues, talk tools, brainstorm ideas and network with others who use digital tools to explore and visualize their research.
