Registration is now open for the Digital Atlas Design Internship for undergraduate students for the spring 2021 term. The course, taught by World History Center postdoctoral fellow Dr. Susan Grunewald, is designed for students interested in performing historical research on a global scale and learning more about digital tools. Each student, guided by experts at the World History Center and Pitt faculty, will use digital tools such as QGIS and ESRI StoryMap to blend writing, images, narrative, and georeferenced historical maps to create a project about some phenomenon or event in the global or transregional past. The internship supports student research and expands student skills including web based design and project management. Completed projects can be included on resumés and in portfolios.
