Title

History in New Media: U.S. History CD-ROM

Description

We propose to produce a U.S. history CD-ROM for both public and in-school audiences. Who Built America? A Nation Transformed, 1914-1946, uses hypertext and multimedia to survey a vast panorama of key historical events. Public access will be assured by the distribution of free copies to schools and public libraries and by placing portions of the completed CD-ROMs on the Internet.  The overall goal is to develop prototypes for presenting scholarly-based historu through electronic media and to foster increased dialogue about the use of new media for the presentation of the humanities to in-school and public audiences.

(The grant proposal included a second CD-ROM, Landscapes in Time, that would provide a dense portrait of a particaulr time and a single place. That project was not funded in 1995. The American Social History Project reapplied in 1996 and received limited funding to develop this project. It became The Lost Museum)
