Abstract

This essay describes and reflects on the integration of computational research skills into core (that is, compulsory) components of the BA History degree programme at the University of Sussex. Work on this began in Spring/Summer 2015 and was delivered as part of two Year 1 modules that ran in the 2015/16 academic year: The Early Modern World (Autumn term) and The Making of the Modern World (Spring Term). The work was undertaken by Tim Hitchcock, Sharon Webb, and James Baker, academic staff in the Department of History with expertise in computational research through their work in Digital History and Digital Humanities.
