    Abstract:
    Syllabus for HIST3812, Winter 2018 at Carleton University, Department of History, on 'Critical Digital Making'. "What happens to history as it gets digitized? That is, what does history look like, what happens to our materials, and the stories we tell or the questions we ask, as we abstract further and further away from ‘In Real Life’? What does ‘digital history’ really mean? How will we explore this question? You will choose a real world object/building/site here in Ottawa that you can access and: progressively abstract it away from the real world with a series of technologies from photogrammetry to augmented reality all the while attending lectures to learn the context of what we’re doing and why, annotating the readings collaboratively on the open web as you keep open notebooks reflecting on this progression so that you can build a digital experience of your understanding of your results for a public reveal to be held on campus at the end of term.
