Digital History Bouquet

Digital History Bouquet published on



The CU Digital History Bouquet is an half-day event geared towards incoming graduate students of the History Department, though open to all its graduate students and faculty. The goal of the event is to introduce students to the digital dispensation in the profession. The event will take place at Fayerweather 310 on August 29, from 8:45am to 11:45am, including coffee. The program is divided into three tracks: scholarly communications, computational methods and theoretical digital humanities. Each of the tracks begins with an overview of the larger issues and ends with a review of local resources available to Columbia graduate students in each of the tracks. We will also make available a page with many resources for each of these panels.
