Today I’m giving a workshop at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on “Accessing Historical Data en Masse.” Slides, links, and more details are available on this standalone page. It’s part of a broader seminar on “Research, Teaching, and Digital Humanities” held as part of their World History Seminar.
Hopefully others find it useful. While the slides aren’t a perfect substitute for having me go through the examples – I hope – it’s being videotaped. Perhaps we can make that available?
