Subject

Description

Roy Rosenzweig contends that the past is not dead. His book, Clio Wired, is a collection of essays focusing on the digital media and how it could keep the past alive. Simplistically, it is broken into three sections: rethinking, practicing, and surveying. The first section, Rethinking History in New Media, focuses on preservation and the use of the internet and digital tools for scholarship. Rosenberg considers what should be preserved and who is responsible for this preservation. In addition, he explores the authority of digital knowledge, new research methods for digital media, and amateur historians from professional historians in a digital realm. Practicing History in New Media: Teaching, Researching, Presenting, Collecting, which is the second section in the book, encompasses how to practice history in the field of digital media. The essays within this section range from teaching methods in the classroom, how to collect history online, using hypertext in scholarly journals, and the open access of scholarly research. The final section in the book, Surveying History in New Media, discusses the future of digital media. His focus is on the advantages of digitization, and he believes in the near future the most important bodies of knowledge will be online, such as in archives.
