In the most recent episode of Digital Campus, Dan and I interviewed Stan Katz (Princeton) about his role in promoting digital history over the past 20 (yes, 20) years. Tom couldn’t join us for the episode because he was at home with the Scheinfeldt family’s new baby. I suppose that qualifies as an excuse. If it seems to you that digital history is too new to have a history, then you need to listen to this episode of Digital Campus. Stan will disabuse you of the notion that what we’re up to is a very recent thing…he was pushing historians to realize that a computer is not a typewriter more than a decade ago and, as that paper reveals, his efforts on behalf of digital history go back even further. For instance, if you like accessing the American Historical Review online, thank Stan. He was the AHA vice president for research who pushed the AHR to move to a digital format. So give the podcast a listen and you’ll even learn how accessing Facebook can lower your GPA.
