Digital Humanities for Public History

This project will focus on the use of Digital Humanities applications as a public history vehicle in cultural heritage settings such as archives, historical societies, and museums. Ms. Mita will develop course projects where students will learn how Digital Humanities and Public History intersect, how to select and use cultural heritage materials to tell a story, and how to use Digital Humanities applications both to mediate storytelling between cultural heritage institutions and the general public and to enhance user engagement and participation in the study of history in non-academic settings.
