CFP: Slate’s Call for Historical Datasets

Rebecca Onion (Slate) is “in search of historical data.” Inspired by the success of Slate‘s interactive graphic based on the Transatlantic Slave Trade Database, Onion seeks datasets that can be used to create “history presented using the interactive power of the web.”

If you, in your work as a historian or humanities scholar, have put together a dataset you’d like to see embodied in a powerful, polished interactive and broadcast to a large audience, I’d love to hear from you.

Interested contributors should email Rebecca Onion for more information.
