Mapping Culture

Tonight I learned about the California Cultural Project from my cousin Josefa Vaughan. Designed to help applicants for funding by giving them powerful demographic tools to produce more convincing rhetoric in the genre of grant-writing, which my colleague Ellen Strenski once called, a "history of the future," this initiative to "collect comprehensive information about the cultural sector in California" was started by the Pew Trust and launched in Pennsylvania and Maryland as well. Users can learn about these data management resources by completing a series of online courses.
