Exploring social change, promoting social justice
Digital Harrisburg is a collaboration between Harrisburg University and Messiah College. It is designed to connect the public, researchers, and undergraduate students, giving them all the opportunity to explore the social history of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s capital.
With these goals in mind, we provide:
Rich digital exhibits designed to be explored by anyone with an interest in the history of Harrisburg and the way the city has changed over the years
Exhaustive datasets that social researchers will find useful as they dig deeper into Harrisburg’s history
Fascinating blog posts that give opportunities for undergraduate students at Messiah College from a wide range of disciplines to have their own work published. The blog is specifically designed to offer a glimpse into the production of this digital humanities project as well as a place to highlight exciting and curious discoveries made by Messiah’s budding researchers
