Connections Digital and Historical: The Digital Public History Minor at the University of Connecticut

A one-year planning grant to develop a minor in digital public history.

The University of Connecticut requests $35,000 to undertake a one-year planning process toward the launch of a Digital Public History Minor. The new minor will be a led by the Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Department of Digital Media and Design (DMD) in the School of Fine Arts. It will be housed in and administered by Greenhouse Studios (greenhousestudios.uconn.edu), an interdisciplinary digital humanities incubator that is a collaboration between these units and the University Library. Combining core course offerings in History and DMD with a set of joint course offerings in digital humanities that bridge the two disciplines with experiential learning opportunities in partner organizations throughout Connecticut, the Digital Public History Minor will give students the technical skills, content area knowledge, and collaborative working styles that will help them succeed in the 21st century economy.
