Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Life Stories through Court Records

In my project, we will read court records from the past to understand the litigants and the social context in which they lived. We will use these primary sources to construct a narrative about the characters and societies we are studying together.

Exploring History through digital projects

In this project, we will select a certain period or region and explore existing digital projects that scholars are undertaking at the current moment. In parallel with this careful analysis of digital historiography, we will conduct a digital project of our own.
