AHA19 Digital Projects Lightning Round

Digital technologies have expanded the reach of scholarship in the way historians communicate their research to an audience and present findings, as well as influenced the questions they ask. Text analysis, text mining, mapping, data visualization, and other digital methods and tools make forms of research beyond the traditional text-based article or monograph possible, while also encouraging scholars to consider issues of information storage, visual presentation, and user engagement.

This lightning round invites historians working on digital projects to share their work in a series of three-minute presentations. With space for approximately 20 participants, this session is an excellent opportunity for scholars to get feedback on projects at any stage of development, hear about other types of projects and methods, and network with fellow digital historians. We are now accepting abstracts from those looking to participate. To submit an abstract, e-mail Elyse Martin at emartin@historians.org with the subject “Digital Projects Lightning Round Submission.” Please include an 80-word abstract and the title of your project.
