The Wheaton College Digital History Project led by Dr. Kathryn Tomasek, Associate Professor of History at Wheaton College, offers an excellent example of how to integrate a digital humanities project into the undergraduate curriculum.  Students help transcribe and markup documents from the college’s archives. Project goals include:

  • Teaching historical methods through transcription and markup of primary sources with TEI*-conformable XML**
  • Making hidden collections accessible
  • Encouraging collaborative research and pedagogy
  • Exploring the intersections of history and digital media
