Extended abstracts due December 17
"The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media and the Journal of Social History with generous support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation seek historians to participate in a series of workshops that will develop articles based on digital research to be published in a special issue of JSH. Scholars will receive travel funding to participate in three workshops, facilitated by Matt Karush and Sam Lebovic (editors of the JSH) and Stephen Robertson and Lincoln Mullen (at RRCHNM), to help them develop their research from digital projects into journal articles that speak to historiographical conversations in their specific fields.
Historians who are interested in participating should send a one-page description of their research which makes an initial attempt to explain how they will use digital history methods or collections to advance historiographical conversations within their specific subfields. Send materials to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 17, 2018."
What is the History Design Studio?
The History Design Studio is a year-long workshop for developing, critiquing, and producing new projects in multimedia history. Workshops include group discussion, collaborative brainstorming, rapid prototyping exercises, and formal and informal group critique sessions with guest critics.
In addition to being a physical studio space in the Hutchins Center, equipped with hardware and software for multimedia production, HDS is also a community and network of like-minded scholars, invested in collaborative work and experimental narrative forms. All Harvard students and affiliates are welcome to participate. No design or art experience is necessary.
