WORKSHOP AND GRANTS FOR ONLINE HISTORY OF SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS
As part of its ongoing effort to promote and collect the history of science and technology online, the ECHO project at the Center for History New Media at George Mason University will be conducting a virtual workshop in January 2003. Participants in this workshop will learn how to use the internet to collect and present historical materials for studies of the recent history of science and technology. Upon completion of the workshop participants will receive a $250 stipend to pursue their online project.
For examples of online projects that collect and present historical materials, please visit the September 11 Digital Archive http://911digitalarchive.org/, which was created using ECHO technologies and methods and which has collected over 25,000 stories, images, and email from the attacks and their aftermath, as well as smaller projects on the history of science and technology at the ECHO Memory Bank http://echo.gmu.edu/memory/.
Applicants should email the following by December 13, 2002:
a 1-2 page statement of interest describing their proposed online project in the history of science, technology, or medicine
a C.V. or resume
a one-paragraph description of their technical/computer skills (applicants of all technical levels are eligible; this description will be used for workshop planning).
The workshop will be conducted entirely over the internet and by phone; no
travel is required.
The ECHO project is funded by a generous grant from the Alfred P. Sloan
