WORKSHOP AND GRANTS FOR ONLINE HISTORY OF SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS
Project ECHO at the Center for History & New Media at GMU announces a virtual workshop to train historians of the recent history of science, technology and medicine in techniques of collecting and presenting digital primary sources via the web. Conducted entirely on the web and by phone, and offering a stipend of $250 for completion, the workshop will help scholars and historical practitioners learn to design, implement, and sustain web-based projects that can host historical communities of recollection and discourse, while also enabling the upload of digital primary sources. Major areas of coverage will include online ethics, intellectual property, effective web design and interactivity, and recruiting historical subjects. Workshop participants will include graduate students and faculty working in HSTM and interested in using the web to gather materials for their research, as well as other practitioners seriously engaged in preserving and documenting the history of science, technology or medicine.
