We are less than 2 months away from the Winter quarter, and enrollments are open at UCR and across the UC campuses for the online version of History 99W. The course is “The Historian’s Workshop”, an in it, I use zombies to introduce students to historical methods. If you want to know how I do it, take the course! Or check the syllabus out. It’s all posted at the enrollment site here.
The zombie theme won’t come as a surprise to anyone who knows me – and for the online version of the course (renumbered for arcane reasons to History 19WV) we are using one textbook only: Max Brooks’ World War Z. All other readings are available within the course site to enrolled students. There’ll be primary source readings, and online archives to explore and comment on, and two large research projects. Please take a look at the first research assignment here: digitalzombies.ucr.edu.
The course is open to UCR students, all UC students, and non-UC students. More info on cross-campus enrollment here .
