Gale Digital Scholar Lab and King Tut: A Conversation with Sarah Ketchley, PhD - For Higher Ed Users
What do newspapers of 1922 reveal about the discovery of King Tutankhamun’s tomb? How did 'Egyptomania' develop, and what was the popular opinion about the mummy’s 'curse'? During the 2021-22 school year, Sarah Ketchley’s undergraduate students at University of Washington used Digital Humanities (DH) techniques to explore these questions and more. In this conversation, Dr. Ketchley talks about her courses, the student projects, and how Gale Digital Scholar Lab was a useful tool for teaching DH.
