Alaska Is: A Collaborative History of Alaska, Digital Publication Project

Preparation of an open-access digital history of Alaska. (35 months)

The Anchorage Museum is requesting support for the development of a collaborative, open-source digital textbook for the history of Alaska. The project will create a comprehensive resource that tells Alaska’s history with inclusive, multi-layered narratives and perspectives, broadening an understanding of Alaska’s place in regional, national, and international contexts. Through multimedia links with primary and secondary sources, new research and historic material, the publication will bring together curated content that fosters a robust understanding of Alaska as a place of extremes, as well as a place of constant change and resilience. It will build a foundation that can scale from broad chronological overviews, to the personal story, to archival images and art. It will honor the authentic voices of the state’s history, deepening an understanding of Alaska in the context of place, identity, and adaptation, with scholarship reaching across history, the humanities, and the social sciences.
