Praise For…


“This book offers a powerful intervention in public humanities and public histories, contextualizing and offering case studies on a series of projects that fit under the rubric of what the editors call “DiCE” or “Digital Community Engagement.
— Risam Roopika, Salem State University

“[The editors bring together] a diverse set of community-focused, digital public history projects that nonetheless cohere into a unified work. The case studies are immediately relevant to the concerns of community organizers, activists, and practitioners working today."
