Volume 3 of THE JOURNAL FOR MULTIMEDIA HISTORY
Now available on-line at http://www.albany.edu/jmmh.
This issue's centerpiece is "Miner's Son, Miner's Photographer," an in-depth profile of documentary photographer George Harvan and his work in the anthracite-mining region of Pennsylvania. Tom Dublin and Melissa Doak present over 280 photographs, hours of oral interviews, and an analytical essay exploring Harvan's life and legacy.
Also in this issue:
---Gerald Butters pays tribute to Oscar Micheaux, one of the most important 20th Century African American filmmakers, by examining one of Micheaux's most controversial films: Within Our Gates (1919). Butters explores the film as a powerful response to D. W. Griffith's The Birth of a Nation, and focuses on its depiction of black masculinity.
---"Sonic History: The Making of Lost and Found Sound" presents several pieces profiling the work of The Kitchen Sisters, Davia Nelson and Nikki Silva, co-producers of Lost and Found Sound. It starts with a talk delivered by them in October 2000 at the annual meeting of the Oral History Association. In an interview with Charles Hardy, they explain their entry into radio and the genesis of the series. Art Silverman, senior producer at National Public Radio (NPR), provides insight into how this unusual series found a home on NPR's "All Things Considered."
---"Historically Speaking:" Mary Beth Norton discusses her approach to the study of early U.S. women's history and her intellectual odyssey from her undergraduate years to the present.
---The Investigator, a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation radio play first produced in 1954 and a thinly disguised, devastating commentary on McCarthyism, begins our new series: "From the Archives." Gerald Gross of Concordia University, Montreal, comments on this unique audio artifact and its author, Reuben Ship.
---Two essays explore the pedagogical and research implications of new digital technologies: Robert Griffith's "Un-Tangling the Web of Cold War Studies; or, How One Historian Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Internet," and Ian Anderson's "Creating Instructional CD-ROMs." Griffith provides a roadmap to on-line resources pertaining to the Cold War while Anderson summarizes the work of the History Courseware Consortium at the University of Glasgow, Scotland in developing CD-ROM and on-line multimedia resources for undergraduate instruction.
Reviews of CD-ROMs, Web sites, Video, and audio productions are included as well.
