Digital History Lab now operational

It’s taken a few years, but Eastern’s History department is proud to finally have our very own Digital History Lab. What’s a Digital History Lab, you ask? It’s a room with computers and specialized software reserved for History faculty and majors, it’s located in Webb 408, and it will be the centerpiece for the department’s efforts to incorporate more digital tools into our curriculum. We already offered the first section of HIS 386: Introduction to Digital History last fall, and will make it a regularly-scheduled course starting in Fall 2019. In the meantime, you can look forward to an increasing number of fancy maps and visualizations in your courses. So stay tuned.

A YouTube video showing the lab in action can be seen here.
