Inspired by the work of colleagues @ the new Digital Public Library of America and others we’ve interviewed here at The Junto, here are some bookmark-worthy links to what’s going on in the ever-evolving field of the digital humanities. We’ll update this list as projects develop, so if you’re working on a digital history initiative, please let us know so we can add it to the Resources page.
If you use new media in the classroom, how effective do you find it to be in communicating historical content/class themes? Please share your views on digital pedagogy in the comments.

Nice! You might also be interested in “A Guide to Digital Humanities”: http://sites.library.northwestern.edu/dh/
Great post. This is really helpful. I’ve tried to experiment with some low-level digital assignments this spring in a course titled the Rise and Fall of Atlantic Slavery. You can see our course website here: http://riseandfallofslavery.wordpress.com/
I’ve blogged about the experience over at teachingushistory.blogspot. One of the more interesting assignments required the students to write a historiography of a Wikipedia page. You can read about that here: http://teachingunitedstateshistory.blogspot.com/2013/03/wikipedia-as-historiographical-microcosm.html.
Not everything worked, but much of it did. I’m looking forward to refining these assignments and adding additional activities.
