Welcome to

This is the course blog for History in the Digital Age at American University. One of the explicit goals of this course is for us to develop as communicators on the public web. To that effect students will be sharing and discussing their ideas about various digital tools, resources, and readings with the intention of engaging both with eachother and with any of the broader digital history web whom wishes to participate.

This is the only part of the course readings which is actually composed by the students and the broader public. Please join our conversation, but please do so respectfully. We are all learning how to do this together.
