And just like that, January is over…only three and a half more months of winter to look forward to up here in central Maine! I would prefer some snow to the frigid cold of last week and unseasonable warmth of this week.
I declared January Digital History month here at Stillwater Historians in part because I am in the early stages of designing and planning an undergraduate and graduate course which will incorporate digital history and digital tools (more about those later in the semester). To wrap up what turned out to be a fabulous month of thought and planning I wanted to provide a set of links that will prove useful as you think about your relationship to and place within the digital humanities.
