Join us for DH events and workshops at Rutgers University Newark.


Using HistoryPin for Spatial Humanities and Social Sciences
Connecting area, space and place with theoretical concepts is the lynchpin of the emerging paradigm of spatial literacy. HistoryPin is a simple, interactive social media tool instructors can use to help create compelling course assignments with a spatial literacy component. This one hour workshop will give instructors a brief introduction to spatial literacy concepts and get them started using creating and using HistoryPin accounts. Options for administrating HistoryPin for course work and group projects will be discussed. Instructor: Krista White (Digital Humanities Librarian).
