Digital Methods for Military History: An Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities

A two-week long institute that will teach participants how to create datasets, visualize data, and create maps, with the overarching goal of creating a cohort of military historians who are able to use digital tools and methods to examine issues at the intersection of war and society.

As historians have begun to accept and adopt digital methods for historical analysis, the field of military history has been slow to follow suit. For a field that is rich with data and unconventional sources for analysis, this lack of adoption is somewhat surprising. Both structural barriers and lack of training contribute to the relative paucity of compelling digital projects that focus on military history. To address these barriers and provide hands-on training in digital methods of particular interest to the military history community, the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University requests funding for Digital Methods for Military History, an Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities.
