We hope you’ll be able to swing by the Athenaeum, anytime 9am-5pm today (Tuesday, May 8) to join us for our Transcribe-a-Thon focused on Ed Gitre’s “The American Soldier in World War II” project.
Account and Site: you may activate a Zooniverse account in advance and contribute at any time!
Program schedule (we will go live online 5 mins. before each. Please do mute your audio [so we are not inundated with sound] and disable video if you prefer not to be seen):
• 11:30am EDT: Project Introduction, Prof. Ed Gitre
• 12:15pm EDT: Selected Survey Readings, Jennifer Nardine & Christopher Miller
• 1:00pm EDT: WWII-era music, Ted Alt, saxophone
If you are coming to Athenaeum in-person, we can’t wait to welcome you! We will have laptops available for your use (or bring your own, if you prefer). We find that transcription tends to be a very social activity, so bring a friend (or several) and a picnic lunch!
Finally, stickers! Transcription tallies on May 8th and reported to us by 11:59pm (screen grab of contributions made) garner ranking stickers (final designs attached):
- 3rd class: 10
- 2nd class: 20
- 1st class: 30
- General: 50
