View all HIS classes

This is a research and writing seminar updated for the digital age. All students of history must learn how to study texts and artifacts from the past. But what about using YouTube videos as a historical source? How will historians of the future study our text messages and decipher our emojis? How can students assess which online content is reliable? This class will help students master the essentials of historical research with a particular emphasis on using online historical sources. Students will then write up and present their research in a variety of online formats: wiki articles, podcasts, blog posts, and more, helping students hone the kinds of practical writing skills that will help them in any future career. Typically offered: Spring.
