#LSRcorps Research Consortium Seminar

  • Max Kade Center 3401 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States

This public seminar will meet and operate in loose tandem with other #LSRCorps projects, including Rivers of Energy, the Eastwick Oral History Project, the WetLand Project, and the River Guides Initiative.

The seminar provides the opportunity for regional Schuylkill River stakeholders--with knowledge of various kinds--to attend and to present on "their" river.

Presenters will provide information and data that can be incorporated into the modest archive of materials we have begun to collect to illuminate the River's rich historical and contemporary lives. This public digital archive of information will provide content for the #LSRCorps tour app (whose development is generously now seeded by Drexel University's Excite Center) and will also feed the Omeka platform now under construction by Penn Libraries' Laurie Allen and her team.
