Getting Started in the Digital Humanities with Digital Storytelling and the Immigrant Stories Project

Elizabeth Venditto

So you’re interested in the digital humanities. You’re considering a new skill or tool, maybe through a lesson here at the Programming Historian. But your research involves working with individuals and the stories they tell, rather than abstract data. Is there a place for you in the digital humanities?

Seeking Spanish Language Editor

Adam Crymble

Building on our commitment to diversity and access, The Programming Historian is seeking a new team member to help us bring the project to 400-million Spanish speakers worldwide. We envisage this to include both cultivating of a Spanish-language community of users and contributors and facillitating the translation of existing resources. There is significant scope to make this role your own. This is a voluntary academic service position.

Add The Programming Historian to Your Library's Catalogue

Amanda Visconti

One of the suggested ways to help The Progamming Historian (PH) out in Adam Crymble’s recent post, The Progamming Historian’s Commitment to Diversity”, was adding PH to your library’s catalogue. Doing so not only helps legitimize the efforts of PH’s authors as the scholarship it is, it also increases public access to a strong, free resource for exploring the digital humanities (DH). By listing PH in library catalogues, we can help anyone using library search engines to seek DH knowledge find PH and have know it’s been vetted by librarians as a trustworthy resource.
