Digital History Interns 2006

The summer is over and the first five digital history interns at Western have completed the projects that they were working on: Jennifer Bonnell developed a place-based computing system for a field trip at the NiCHE summer school; Tim Compeau created the website An American Refugee: Joel Stone, United Empire Loyalist; Joel Ralph wrote a proof-of-principle demonstration for geocoding articles from The Beaver: Canada's History Magazine; Cat Rose worked on a historic driving tour of the Niagara region; and Rebecca Woods began a text mining project and helped to develop a graduate course in digital history. There is more information on the Digital History at Western internships page. I will be continuing the program next summer; please contact me if you are interested in it.
