DH Jews of Boston site launched

This past semester (fall 2020) I taught our inaugural class of HIST/JST 2430 Digital Histories of Ethnic Boston. Our focus was this history of the Jews of Boston, and how the history of the Jews in the city is intertwined with that of other groups, but especially African Americans. Students alternated learning techniques and tools in the digital humanities and learning–through reading and physically exploring–about the history of Boston’s Jewish communities. Their collaborative projects are on the newly launched https://dhjewsofboston.northeastern.edu and are a resource for anyone interested in the history of the Jewish experience in Boston.
