The Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University announces an exciting opportunity for historians of science, technology, and industry: a Digital History Workshop in New York.
CHNM's ECHO project invites public historians of science, technology, and industry in the New York area to our next workshop on the theory and practice of digital history. The workshop will be held on January 17, 2008 at the New York Public Library. Participants will explore the ways that digital technologies can facilitate the research, teaching, and presentation of history; genres of online history and tools; website infrastructure and design; scholarly collaboration; digitization and online collecting; the process of identifying and building online history audiences; and issues of copyright and preservation. There is no registration fee, but spaces are limited. Please submit an application form by December 1, 2007 (available at http://chnm.gmu.edu/tools/surveys/3794/); accepted participants will be notified by December 10**.
