Hi all! I’ll be posting here weekly responses from the readings we are doing and the digital tools and techniques that we are exploring in the Digital History course from the History Department at the University of Michigan.

You can consider these posts as a work in progress, I am writing them as long as I am learning and reflecting about the DH world, its possibilities and shortcomings, but specially, while thinking about its potentialities.

Comments, suggestions and ideas are very welcome and truly appreciated! You can find my contact info here.
