This year the subject of the third Carroll R. Pauley Memorial Endowment Symposium at the Department of History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is "History in the Digital Age." We will explore how historians are using digital technologies in their scholarship across a wide range of fields and how digital technologies are changing the practice of scholarship, research, teaching, and learning. This symposium will be one of premier gatherings of digital scholars in the country and offer a unique and important perspective on the state-of-the-art scholarship and the future of digital humanities.
This symposium brings together leading historians of China, Europe, the U.S., Africa, and Canada working with historical GIS, simulations, computational modeling, and visualizations of key problems in history. All of the sessions are open to the public and we invite all interested in the methodology, the history, or the technologies to come to Lincoln and participate in the symposium. For those who cannot attend the symposium in person September 21-22, 2006, all of the sessions will be available through podcasts and web presentations shortly thereafter.
