Ray Pianka became a student of local history at a young age, learning long before this Center came into existence, that not only could history be used to cause people to take notice of change occurring in their neighborhood, but that it could be used to preserve and rebuild neighborhoods.
Public History & Humanities
The Center for Public History + Digital Humanities at Cleveland State University Department of History develops state-of-the-art public humanities projects and resources rooted in scholarly disciplines in concert with university and K-12 educators and students, libraries, museums and cultural institutions, and neighborhood organizations.
The Cleveland Regional Oral History Collection consists of nearly 1,000 audio interviews. Students, educators and researchers from throughout Northeast Ohio regularly contribute to the collection, which features a breadth of topics through interviews that cover a broad cross-section of the community. Cleveland Voices showcases highlights of this collection.
CPHDH specializes in mobile apps that foster digital storytelling. Building upon our award-winning Cleveland Historical website and app, we developed Curatescape, a low-cost, open-source mobile framework for publishing location-based humanities content that is available for licensing. To date more than 30 organizations worldwide have adopted Curatescape.
