Lewis and Clark Student
Digital History Projects

This course enabled a limited number of students from a variety of majors to both study and gain hands-on experience in the scholarly opportunities available at the intersection of history and digital media. Students enrolled in MDST 382: History and Digital Media learned how to conduct archival research, digitize a variety of source materials, mark up text, create digital audio and video files, and develop dynamic presentations from their findings under supervision of a faculty member. Topics of inquiry included a variety of Lewis and Clark-related historical sites in and around Albemarle County including Native American settlements, family homesteads, and public monuments. Students met weekly to discuss common readings and develop their research topics through regular meetings with the instructor and local subject-matter experts and work in teams to produce digital history projects that contribute to UVa's ongoing Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Project
