All of ASHP’s Work Goes On . . .
Fortunately, all of our staff are able to work fully from home. So writing, designing, and programming continues on Who Built America? Open Educational Resource, which is scheduled to be completed in 2021. Two Mission US projects are also in production. Mission 6, Prisoner in My Homeland on the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II is nearing completion. It will be released by the end of April and introduced to teachers with a webinar shortly thereafter. Mission 7, No Turning Back, on the 1960s voting rights struggle in Mississippi is currently being scripted. We recently began working with a group of scholars and educators on contract with the New York City Department of Education to assist in developing K-12 teaching materials on LGBTQ+ history. Work on our NEH summer institute, Visual Culture of the Civil War and Its Aftermath, has been progressing and we are currently awaiting guidance from NEH on if and how we can host the two-week seminar this summer. The New Media Lab continues to assist students with their projects and hold virtual meetings.
