The Journalism History Hub: Developing a Research-based Interdisciplinary Social Network and Meta-Conference

The development of a social network and repository system, called the Journalism History Hub, to support the field of history of journalism and to serve as a model for communities from other interdisciplinary fields.

A Level II Digital Humanities Start-up grant, the Journalism History Hub will use Web 2.0 technology to support, enhance and provide an ongoing technological framework for scholarly communication and collaboration. Participants will have access to preprints and postprints of conference papers and abstracts, scholarly articles, and conference programs, with the added ability to comment on archived research and the opportunity to identify and collaborate with scholars working on similar issues across different disciplines in innovative ways. The grant will provide for planning, developing a prototype, initially populating, and soliciting participation in the Hub. Ultimately, the Hub proposes to "mash-up" social networking and content repository technology in conjunction with existing interdisciplinary scholarly communities who meet at specialized conferences.
