Digital History at UHA

There's an issue with Twitter

The digital transformation of historical scholarship has been underway for several years and there has been a special effort to feature digital scholarship at UHA 2014.

A note on Twitter: if you’re tweeting the conference or a session, please use the hashtag #UHA2014 — it will allow everyone who is following or searching that tag to keep track of all the goings-on in Philadelphia.  Presenters should realize it’s possible that any papers or sessions could be live-tweeted.  I’ll be keeping track of things and feel free to follow along for retweets or other conversations at @lwinling.
