Public History Working Group
The "On the Nines" Project under the Public History Working Group will provide advanced graduate students with professional development opportunities and training in digital technology, media, quantitative literacy, and editing for online publishing. The goal of this working group is to develop skills that could be used to acquire jobs both within and outside the academy. For this workshop, we have created a multimedia program called “On the Nines” where graduate students—regardless of their temporal or geographic expertise— can work collaboratively as an editorial board while creating and contributing to digital tools, interactive storytelling portals, data sets, online exhibits, podcasts, digital roundtables, collectively written syllabi, and lesson plans on U.S. History Scene related to events that took place in years that end with “9.” Each unit will be rolled out on their anniversary date in 2019.
