European History Primary SourcesIn October last, when teaching a course on alternative narratives for the history of Europe available in heritage and cultural institutions (Libraries, Archives, Museums, Galleries) and, also, in EU institution themselves, I explained goals and purposes of the EUI Library and Department of History and Civilization digital project for accessing Open Access primary sources for the History of Europe: EHPS – European History Primary Sources.

The course about “Digital narratives for the History of Europe” was hosted by Prof. Andreas Fickers Digital History seminar at the University of Luxembourg. After the presentation and during the next weeks, students were asked to review critically and to comment one of the projects described during the lesson. They do so systematically in their blog: h-Europe, a blog about European Historiography. Many students attending the seminar chose to analyze critically the European History Primary Sources portal EHPSmaintained by the EUI Library and the EUI History Department.

They are available in H-europe at the following URLs for who’s interested in how to review digital history projects using blog posts and as a pedagogical activity in the field.
