By Tuesday, November 16 everyone needs to have looked at the other projects (look under Contributors to the right).  The class will vote on the top 5-8 projects.  These will join the five projects picked from the 2008 class.  I’ll email out the link to vote as we get closer.

Your first job is to set up an account on the wiki, if you don’t already have one from a previous class with me.

Your second job is to go to UMW and sign up for a blog of your own. Then shoot me an email with the name of your blog (it doesn’t have to be your name) and create your first post (a test post is fine).

  • You will use your blog to continue conversations that we start in class, as well as use it as the base for your digital research project.
  • Tag each post with histfilm so that it becomes part of our conversation here, on this course blog as well.

[If you are not planning on using a blog for your project then see me as soon as possible to talk about other digital options.]
