I am taking this class because it really caught my eye last semester. I have always been interested in history so the opportunity to work on projects where can digitize them and make them more accessible and interactive for others really pulled me in.
Digital History is the use of digital tools to further interactivity with an ever-growing audience, essentially it is rejuvenating history that has been previously recorded in a static medium.
Digital Humanities is what the previous term falls under. It follows the same definition as DIgital History but it encapsulates more areas of the humanities.
They are different because the former is a bit more constrained to areas of history, while the latter has more freedom in where the information can go.
