Online Mini-Summit : October 15, 2021 — 2:00-4:00PM
Educational Possibilities of Computational Archival Science:
How can digitized archival collections and computational tools support P-20 educational goals?
This online mini-summit will highlight recent progress with funded work in computational archival science from an educator network and a cluster of projects using digitized collections that highlight historical social issues, including systemic racism and consequential cultural structures.
