Hosted by the Center for Spatial and Textual Analysis (CESTA), Stanford University 

For the San Francisco conference in March 2014, ASEH and six co-sponsoring organizations (see below) will offer a pre-conference workshop on state-of-the-art digital environmental history research, teaching, and public outreach. Workshop participants will explore a suite of digital projects (both completed and under development), discuss best practices, examine the strengths and weakness of various platforms, and brainstorm about opportunities for collaboration and funding. It is designed for scholars and practitioners with at least some digital experience. Deep technical knowledge is not required.
