Am I a Digital Historian? | Stillwater Historians

[D]igital history has reached a level of popularity, despite its amorphousness, that every department who has funding for a faculty line and no digital historian seems to think they need one. And wouldn’t it be a shock if upon forging a definition we discovered that three members of that department already were digital historians, they just didn’t know it! Like the episode of The West Wingwhere they redefine the poverty line only to discover that they have 4 million new poor people in an election year! It takes someone to actually point out that they were poor the whole time—and that we just started calling them that!
