1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 TO BE REVISED:  Oscar Rosales Castañeda’s essay, “Writing Chicana/o History with the Seattle Civil Rights and Labor History Project,” describes how students and faculty created a digital public history project to document local activism, and the vivid role it played in shaping their lives as well as historical knowledge on the contemporary Pacific Northwest. In “Citizen Scholars: Facebook and the Co-Creation of Knowledge,” Amanda Grace Sikarskie makes the case for lay historians actively contributing to research through social media, drawing on her rich experience with the Quilt Index. Finally, Shawn Graham, Guy Massie, and Nadine Feuerherm offer a behind-the-scenes look and some early conclusions drawn from their experience in documenting Canadian memories for “The HeritageCrowdProject: A Case Study in Crowdsourcing Public History.”
