eHistory.osu.edu launches “The Human Machinery of War: Disability on the Front Lines and the Factory Floor, 1941-1945.”
eHistory—the digital outreach portal for the department of history at The Ohio State University—has launched its latest multimedia history: an interactive website titled “The Human Machinery of War: Disability on the Front Lines and the Factory Floor, 1941-1945.” The site was designed and created by Ohio State PhD candidate Audra Jennings, who also serves as secretary of the Disability History Association. The new multimedia history is located at:
Typically when we think of WWII, we think of soldiers killed or injured on foreign soil, but the men and women who manned the nation’s factories, mills, and mines also suffered heavy physical losses during the conflict. "The Human Machinery of War" explores both the experiences of disabled soldiers and industrial workers during WWII, battlefield medicine, industrial safety campaigns, and rehabilitation programs.
eHistory (http://ehistory.osu.edu) features multimedia histories, collections of primary sources (including the complete Official Records of the Civil War), history book reviews, reviews of historical sites, museums and films; online books; a map and image database. Soon eHistory will feature a monthly online magazine Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective.
