The Maine Memory Network: Creating a Critical Framework for Interpreting Maine History Online and in the Community

Implementation of a website containing thematic essays and small online exhibitions with related public programs about key ideas and topics in Maine history and about how history is written and remembered.

The project will create Maine History Online, a new website within the Maine Memory Network ('s nationally-recognized online history archive-that will introduce people to key themes, topics, and events in Maine history, and encourage them to think critically about history. Maine History Online will be developed in close partnership with a prestigious group of national and regional scholars, and draw extensively on the 10,000+ historical images, documents, and objects that have been contributed to Maine Memory by 160 organizations across Maine. Maine History Online will explore Maine history through three richly illustrated, interconnected historical approaches: chronological, thematic, and critical. The project responds to widespread public demand for interpretive context that is currently missing from Maine Memory.
