A Crowdsourced History of the American Soldier in World War II (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: A Crowdsourced History of the American Soldier in World War II
Abstract: Veterans Week webinar, part of the University of Missouri - St. Louis Center for the Humanities Digital Humanities lecture series, funded by the Missouri Arts Council Prof. Gitre will talk about a Virginia Tech-based NEH-funded interdisciplinary digital initiative that is harnessing the power of “the crowd” and artificial intelligence to provide public access to a unique historical collection—65,000 pages of uncensored reflections on war and military service from American soldiers, in their own words. The project began as a digital humanities classroom experiment in 2015. Hosted on the planet’s largest crowdsourcing platform, Zooniverse.org, The American Soldier in World War II has since now attracted thousands of other “citizen archivist” volunteers from around the globe, breaking down the wall between the classroom and public square.
