Historians, New Communications Technologies and Historiography: 'Pictures of Health', an Australian History World Web Project
"Harnessing the potential of the Internet and the World Wide Web has become a primary concern among humanists. In "'The Pictures of Health' Project," Paul Turnbull, e;ected the first president of H-Net in 2000, reflects on using the Web in teaching the history of the social sciences, truly part of the current renaissance. Turnbull's article deals with networked digital information systems and the ways in which computing is increasingly being used in the social sciences and humanities and the challenges we face. Turnbull is asking the most relevant question about computer technology: How is it connected to the changes now affecting scholarly culture? He offers a case study in which technology was used creatively to address disturbing assumptions about the relationships between technology and social change."
