Hidden Histories on America's Front Lawn: mobile.mallhistory.us

Implementation of a mobile tour and website on the history and culture of the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University is requesting funding over three years to create a mobile-optimized website that provides visitors to the National Mall with access to a rigorous interpretation of the history and culture of the Mall as a space where national identity is built, negotiated, celebrated, protested, and remembered. "Hidden Histories of America's Front Lawn: mobile.mallhistory.us" intends to make visible the rich past of the National Mall for its millions of on-site visitors through a website easily accessible by mobile phones that provides content and interpretation far superior to static guidebooks and existing mobile tours and applications.
