Digital History Goes Mainstream: The role of digital technologies in historical scholarship, teaching, and society George Mason University

We are excited to announce the call for papers for the 2010 meeting of the American Association for History and Computing.

Digital History Goes Mainstream: The role of digital technologies in historical scholarship, teaching, and society

George Mason University, November 5-7th

The personal computer is now more than thirty years old. At this point, associate and assistant professors, archivists, and other history professionals do not remember a time before the existence of computing technologies. With every passing year more “digital natives” enter the history community as historians, archivists, curators, and educators. This conference is aimed at exploring what that transformation means and how that transformation has, for better and worse, affected historical scholarship, teaching, and communities.
