Call to Join the Blog Parade: Teaching History in the Digital Age – Who, What, How? #dhiha8

June 17 and 18, 2019 will see the eighth colloquium in the “Digital Humanities at DHIP” series, organised by the German Historical Institute Paris in collaboration with the Luxembourg Center for Contemporary and Digital History: Teaching History in the Digital Age – International Perspectives #dhiha8.

In preparation for the symposium Teaching Digital History to Historians – International Perspectives, which will take place on 17 and 18 June 2019 at the German Historical Institute, in cooperation with the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History, we are organising a blog parade on „Digital History in Higher Education“. The texts can be published on the author’s blog, or on the German Historical Institute’s conference blog until 10 June 2019, in German, English or French. Their titles will contain the hashtag of the symposium, #dhiha8. The blog posts will be summarised and integrated into the afternoon workshop discussion. In particular, we would like to attract personal accounts of initiatives, examples from teaching practice or reflections on the following topics:

Digital History

In recent years, the Digital Humanities community has advocated innovative methods, including the development of many digital tools that are not adapted to the specific field of history. Rather, these approaches have developed in the much more general field of humanities and computer science. Since many applications of the Digital Humanities are not yet subject to any disciplinary canon or standard, familiarisation with these methods and tools requires an intensive interdisciplinary effort of understanding that must generally be carried out individually.
