NYU: Creating a Digital History taught by Prof. Peter Wosh at New York University (Spring 2007)

Spring 2007 Final Projects

"Historians and archivists increasingly use new media to broaden their audiences, present the past in innovative ways, and increase access to their collections. Web-based history projects have proliferated throughout the profession in recent years, creating extraordinary new opportunities and presenting novel challenges. This course will explore the intellectual complexities and practical issues involved in gathering, preserving, and presenting the past on the web. Students will examine and critique a variety of web-based historical projects. They will also create an on-line exhibit, drawing upon the rich visual and textual resources of the New York University Archives, which explores some aspect of NYU history."

Below is an example of a completed project by Chelsea Blacker.
