Doing History in Public - a new training course for graduate students

last modified Nov 26, 2013 01:42 PM
The Digital Humanities Network is helping to design and deliver a new social media training course for graduate students in the History Faculty. "Doing History in Public" will introduce Cambridge graduate historians to social media and online publishing through the creation of a collective Wordpress blog.

The course will build on the successful skills training programmes run by the DH Network last academic year, DH23 Things and the Social Media Knowledge Exchange.

Places are still available for graduate students in the History Faculty. Read more about the course online here.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of developing a similar course for your Faculty, please contact Dr Anne Alexander, the DH Network Co-ordinator (raa43 @

We are a network of researchers at the University of Cambridge who are interested in how the use of digital tools is transforming scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. This transformation spans both the content and practice of humanities research, as the diffusion of digital technologies opens up new fields of study and generates research questions which breach traditional disciplinary boundaries.
