Digital History Workshop at UHA 2014: Apply Now

The UHA’s web and digital initiative has organized a number of digital history panels for the 2014 conference in Philadelphia, but there is one in particular that may be of interest to scholars, grad students, and professionals with a digital history project in mind but who might be uncertain of how to get it off the ground.

Digital Projects from the Ground Up is a session at 8:30 am Friday morning during the conference. Scholars will work with a Philadelphia-area digital and data professional who will advise on how digital capabilities can help facilitate research or communication, how to organize and phase a project, what technologies and tools are available, and where to look for support within a university or in external grant funds.

Space is limited and will be capped at 20. Applicants should submit a 150-word description of the project idea as it currently stands by September 15 to lwinling[at]

In the project description include

1. Basic information on yourself, including program/department/institution and your research area in urban history.

2. What your research question and/or communication goal is that led to your interest in a digital project.

3. 2-3 links to other projects or digital works that you find interesting or are relevant to your research project.
