Description

Abstract:

This breakout session explores how digital approaches can contribute to public history. We will explore questions such as: How can digital methods and approaches help build audiences for public history projects? How is the digital environment different from traditional public history methods like museum exhibits? What turnkey tools or tools with a shallow learning curve are out there for public historians to use?

Presenter Information

Dave Hochfelder is associate professor of History at University at Albany, SUNY. He is the author of The Telegraph in America: 1832-1920.
