Digital Space and Place is a Spring 2021 graduate-level course taught by Jim McGrath for Northeastern University’s History Department.

Due to the pandemic, this course was taught remotely, and enrolled students primarily engaged with course materials and one another via Canvas, Zoom, and Slack. This course site is a more public-facing and permanent record of the class beyond our Canvas spring semester course site. Additional readings and materials will be added to the site over the course of the Spring 2021 semester.

If you’re curious about the course, please email me ([at]gmail) or get in touch via Twitter (@JimMc_Grath).

Additional information on my teaching (and links to more public-facing course sites) can be found via the “Teaching” section of my personal website.


Previous versions of “Digital Space and Place” at Northeastern were taught by Cameron Blevins: I learned a lot from looking at his syllabi.
