Please join the Digital History Working Group and the Duke Department of History on Monday, October 7 at 9:00 am in the PhD Lab (Smith Warehouse, Bay 4) on Duke’s campus. Dr. Andrew Torget will will share how as a grad student he taught himself the tools necessary to build the Texas Slavery Project, and how he incorporated it into his dissertation. He will take us “under the hood” of his digital project to show us from a more technical perspective what was required to build it.
At noon, Torget will also be presenting at the History Colloquium Series. His talk is called “The Promise and Perils of Doing History in the Digital Age.” You are welcome to join us. The event will take place at 12:00-1:30 on October 7 in room 299 Carr. Lunch will be served. For the official announcement, please see the official announcement for Torget’s talk.
