THE HISTORIAN’S CRAFT IN THE 21ST CENTURY
An Informal Conversation about Technology & Research Methods

This is the makeshift home of THC21, a new series on technology and historical research methods at Harvard, organized by Konrad LawsonJavier Cha and myself, with the generous support of the Center for History and Economics at Harvard University. Here’s our provisional agenda. We’ll meet once a fortnight in Spring 2012 to discuss the vexations of modern historical research, and how technological developments are changing and challenging the way we work. We aim to post links to discussion notes online after each session, so check back if you’d like to keep up with the conversation.
