These are the central readings for our first workshop, and comprise two blog posts and the AHA Guidelines for Evaluating Digital History. Please read over these pieces, and then check out some of the digital projects below.


Both of these projects blend traditional and digital historical practices. We highly recommend them as examples of what digital history can look like.
