Digital Connections: Finding an Online Home for Oral Histories

Thursday, October 17, 2013 - 12:30pm
Event Location: 
UCC, Meeting Room A

Eric Zimmer, PhD Candidate in History, describes the process through which the History Corps — with the help of The Studio — shifted to a new WordPress site, and explores strategies other scholars can use to efficiently and painlessly jump into digital mediums. Through the art of storytelling and open conversations, the History Corps is a website and listening program that demonstrates the value of the humanities in our everyday lives. We promote dialogue between the University of Iowa community and the state of Iowa.

 

This event is a Studio Talk season (formerly PDH4L), a series of informal lunchtime talks about public digital arts and humanities. For a full schedule, see: http://dsph.uiowa.edu/wpDSPH/studiotalks/
