The work of public history calls for taking good history scholarship into the world to meet the needs and interests of non-academic audiences. While much of that work has traditionally happened in face to face encounters and at physical sites, increasingly public historians are encountering their audiences through digital means, such as social media, blogs, exhibit sites, collection and archives sites, mobile applications, and digital simulations.

This site will introduce public historians and their students to the theories and methods central to doing digital public history, and will equip them with the skills necessary to plan and execute their own projects.
