RESOURCE: Digital History & Argument White Paper

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media published a white paper produced from the Arguing with Digital History Workshop earlier this fall. The paper was written collaboratively by workshop participants and edited by Stephen Robertson Lincoln Mullen (both at George Mason University).

From the introduction:

This white paper aims to help bridge the argumentative practices of digital history and the broader historical profession. On the one hand, it aims to demonstrate to the wider historical discipline how digital history is already making arguments in different forms than analog scholarship. On the other hand, it aims to help digital historians weave the scholarship they produce into historiographical conversations in the discipline. The responsibility for integrating digital history with argumentation thus rests both with the digital historians who make implicit or explicit historical arguments and with the rest of the profession who must learn to recognize them.
