Publishing the Past

HIST 207
Rare Books Class

Gen Ed Credit: Hist & Philosophy Perspectives

How were historical documents--the letters, diaries, and other artifacts through which historians learn about the past--published in the print age? How will they be published in the digital future? ‘Publishing the Past,’ a part of the History Department’s SourceLab initiative, introduces students to the history of documentary editing, and invites them to imagine new models for its future. Our  2018 projects are focused on Illinois history as part of the state’s bicentennial commemorations.
