The American Association for History and Computing (AAHC)
2007 Annual Conference
In association with the Brown University Public Humanities Program
April 19-21, 2007
Join the American Association for History and Computing and Brown University’s Public Humanities Program for an innovative look at how technology is allowing for a shared public dialogue between historians and a broad public audience. This conference will be of interest to anyone who is charged with bringing history to a general audience, including museum professionals, archivists, librarians, historic preservationists, filmmakers, as well as academic historians. The conference will explore:
• The role of technology in breaking down the barriers between historians and the larger public
• Ways that historians have used digital technology to communicate with diverse public audiences
• Ways in which the practice of "academic history" is altered when made public
• The "wikipedia-ization" of history
• New forms of collaboration between historians, archivists, librarians, historic preservationists, teachers and students
• New forms of display and historical representation
If you are an historian (academic, public, secondary education, graduate student) or engage history through a related discipline (librarian, archivist, publisher, editor, etc.), you are invited to submit your panel or single presentation proposals.
All presenters must be current members of the AAHC. For more information about membership, please visit our website http://theaahc.org
