The course will take place over the full fall semester, with two physical meetings in Umeå. The first, September 4-6, will be dedicated to explorations, short introductions to main discussions, key problems, and central tools and methods in digital history. Following this meeting, the participants explore, share, and discuss these methods in more detail, based on their own work and research, through a course blog and through work on a mandatory assignment. This work will be semi-structured, but relies heavily on active student participation. The second meeting, December 9-10, is dedicated to reflections, where we discuss the outcomes of this work in more detail and reflect on some higher-order issues and approaches in digital history.
