HIST 300A – Digitizing History teaches how to conduct history projects in the 21st century through documentary film-making, web-design, and best practices in the digital humanities. Students will explore a variety of contemporary models for the production and consumption of historical information on the web — including commercial, non-profit, and government databases, as well as public history, journalistic, and other websites. They will then create a documentary film using professional equipment, to be housed on an interactive website of their own creation.
