Abstract

What happens when you take a format more commonly associated with computer science and technology—the hackathon—and apply it to historical thinking and research design in global history using unique archival and museum collections? This playbook shares what we learned from our project, Global History Hackathons: Doing Global History through Local Archives and Museum Collections (January-June 2019). An inspiring crowd of students and staff took part in Global History Hackathons. You can read about some of their creative and intriguing ideas through Twitter (@HistGlobal #GlobalHistHack19) and our event blogs, which are listed in the Bibliography. We hope this playbook will encourage you to plan and carry out your own hackathons: not just for global history, but also across the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
