As with so many aspects of our lives, the web and digital technologies have profoundly changed communication between public historians and their audiences. From mobile-enhanced gallery guides to crowd-sourced online exhibits of local history, digital tools and methods have changed historical practice. As a result, many departments are developing guidelines for professional credit for both public history and digital methodologies.
Please join the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute, the IU Bloomington Department of History, and the American Historical Association for a discussion of assessment of digital projects in the context of making history public and researching public history approaches using digital methodologies. Dr. Seth Denbo, Director of Scholarly Communication and Digital Initiatives, will join us in Indianapolis on October 12 to lead the conversation about these important issues.
The event is free, but we request that you register for the session HERE.
