The US Holocaust Memorial Museum has introduced a new digital tool for teaching the Holocaust: Experiencing History offers students and teachers an innovative platform for exploring original materials on a variety of themes and topics.
I am conducting an online survey as part of my PhD project on digital oral history. This survey focuses on digital tools and ethical dilemmas and is open to anyone who has already recorded, archived or disseminated oral history interviews.

Dear H-Digital-History subscribers,
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Medieval Art and Digital Humanities
Everyone is familiar with Google Maps—all of us are using it on a daily basis. In 2012 a group of researchers at Stanford (led by Walter Scheidel), developed Orbis (http://orbis.stanford.edu/), which, one may put, applied the same geographical principles to a particular historical context. Dubbed “a Google Maps for the Roman Empire”, this model became a popular historical online resource and an object of envy for scholars working in other historical contexts.
