The Bones of Digital History

(p.1) Introduction The Bones of Digital History
Sport History in the Digital Era

University of Illinois Press

This introductory chapter discusses the relationship between history making and the digital era, particularly sport historians' use of digital tools and engagement with digital history. The digital era provides extensive options for sharing the thoughts and experiences of sport historians on any topic. Indeed, the digital era opens new avenues for pre-publication review, including open-access feedback channels for either the general public or for specific communities of readers. The chapter then differentiates digital history from digital tools. Whereas digital tools can be adapted for a variety of purposes in historical research, teaching, and communication, digital history uses the digital tool box to create or analyze particular forms of online historical representations.

Keywords:   history making, digital history, sport history, digital tools, digital era
