Digital history is not just a buzz word. It is a revolutionary approach to historical scholarship and teaching that has the power to alter how we understand and explore the past.
The digital history node examines the implications of new technologies for history-making, and empowers staff and students to embrace the digital humanities, data science and the internet’s democratisation of historical knowledge and research.
Questions the digital history node investigates in its research and events include:
- What are the implications of the digital sphere for history?
- How can digital methods reshape the way we analyse the past?
- How can big data create new histories and forms of historical knowledge?
- What types of digital literacies does the contemporary historian or history student need?
- How can digital platforms change the way we engage with our audiences and collaborators?
The Digital Histories node is currently conducting a brief survey to assess the digital skills and needs of UTS staff and members of the Australian Centre for Public History. You can complete the survey.
