About eHistory.org

eHistory was founded at the University of Georgia in 2011 by historians Claudio Saunt and Stephen Berry. The first project we launched was IndianNation, a crowdsource/mapping application that geolocates the 237,000 Native Americans captured in the 1900 census (the historic low point of the native population). Since then, eHistory has become a sort of digital collective -- a diverse group of scholars seeking to learn from each other as we experiment and rally on certain forms and formats of digital scholarship. eHistory projects have received positive press from the New York Times, Washington Post, Chronicle of Higher Education, Slate, Vox, London Daily Mail, and a host of other online venues. eHistory projects have been supported by the Mellon Foundation and the American Council of Learned Societies. In 2016, the eHistory USNewsMap project won a prize from the Library of Congress.

eHistory is a research cluster of UGA's Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, a core department of the Georgia Informatics Institute, and a founding member of UGA's DigiLab.
