LaDale Winling on Three Failures and Two Successes in Digital History

Join the Scholars' Lab for a presentation by our visiting scholar, LaDale Winling.  In this talk, Winling will discuss the learning process of attempting several digital history projects with incomplete or unsatisfactory outcomes. From architectural history to New Deal subsidies to urban renewal research, he will illustrate how these failures helped contribute to the success of later projects.

LaDale Winling is an associate professor of history at Virginia Tech and specializes in U.S. urban, political, and digital history. He is the author of Building the Ivory Tower: Universities and Metropolitan Development in the Twentieth Century, published by the University of Pennsylvania Press. He was co-creator of digital history projects on redlining, entitled Mapping Inequality: Redlining in New Deal America, and on Congressional elections, entitled Electing the House of Representatives, 1840-2016.
