Civil War Governors of Kentucky Symposium, June 8–9, 2017

On June 8–9, 2017, KHS and guest convener Amy Murrell Taylor will host ten acclaimed U.S. historians and Organization of American Historians President-elect Edward L. Ayers for a symposium celebrating the initial publication of the Civil War Governors of Kentucky Digital Documentary Edition (CWGK). Each participant will produce short, trailblazing papers that will analyze a different set of documents within the CWGK corpus and propose a list of new historiographical questions that need to be addressed through CWGK materials and using CWGK tools. In addition, a special session for K-12 teachers and museum professionals will discuss the use of digital infrastructure to teach historical thinking to students: formulating questions about causation, testing assumptions with evidence, evaluating the reliability of information, and embracing complexity and contingency. A special 2019 issue of the Register will publish the symposium proceedings. Follow CWGK at CivilWarGovernors.org for more information about the event. [End Page 312]
