Roundup – February

Bach Digital

It’s become apparent that weekly updates on resources, projects, etc., has become untenable at the moment, so I’m scaling it up to monthly updates. I”m going to plan to post more often, though sporadically and of various short notes, links, and so forth.

  • Bach Digital – project from the University of Leipzig digitizing compositions, handwritten sources, and catalogues of Johann S. and other composers in the Bach family.
  • Histories of Digital Labor CFP – CFP for panel at MLA 2016.

Syllabi et cetera.

The below list is more the beginning of a reference list for anyone who is getting ready to teach a digital history course for the first time (a category that includes me, for example). You’ll find digital history syllabi and course website, though I intend to include eventually digital humanities courses that could easily lend themselves to the history classroom. At the end you’ll find a few resources on digital pedagogy in general. This list is not comprehensive, and the emphasis is material oriented towards beginners. Also, this list does not distinguish between physical classrooms and digital classrooms. Enjoy!
