Description

This course enables students to develop and implement a digital project on the history of news. Digital tools are particularly promising for studying the history of news – a subject with so many sources that we can only start to access, catalogue, and analyze many of them with digitization and computer technology. In this project, students will combine digital techniques with the history of news. They will examine why newspapers printed particular stories and not others. Students can acquire skills in digital databases and analysis, mapping techniques, and oral presentation.
