This workshop will provide an overview of current developments in digital history. It will be a very broad general introduction that will aim to introduce the range of activities that the term "digital history" encompasses. As part of that process, we will look at what its benefits are for teaching, research and communication, as well as how funding in digital history can work.

This question is a matter of debate, so some of the resources that appeared early in the debate appear here, along with an editorial that addresses history practiced in public.
An international network of digital humanities centers.
A hub for DH projects, collaborators and resources
An online peer-reviewed journal from PressForward
An edited aggregation of online digital-humanities scholarship.
There are a host of "teaching digital history" posts online. Those listed here represent commonly referenced major resources, or their formats reflect the online ever-changing nature of digital history, or both.
A born-digital, open-review volume about writing and teaching digital history
A proof-of-concept book (under contract at Imperial College Press) that outlines several digital-history techniques. Aimed at advanced undergraduates
Many of the projects in this section overlap. University of Nebraska-Lincoln's History Harvest is a particularly good example.
The DH community is constantly adding and revising resources for the following categories, so search engines and Twitter are your best bet for keeping up to date. A few select tutorials and links to popular tools are included below to get you started:
A searchable list of digital research tools, with very useful filters based on tool type, cost and platform.
An online open-access textbook with tutorials on a number of topics including GIS, topic modeling, Omeka, Zotero, and several programming languages
A very basic tutorial on what GIS is, how its components work, and why it's useful. Part of the Community Tool Box at University of Kansas
