Shockwave Presentation
Interpreting the Meaning of the Revolution
Saul Cornell, Ohio State University

The development of multimedia authoring tools and hypermedia such as the World Wide Web makes it possible for historians to construct a variety of nontraditional narratives. How does hypertext change the way we deal with complex events such as the America Revolution? The following experimental hypertext exploration of the meaning of the American Revolution is a preliminary effort to create a new type of history. Will hypertext allow historians to construct postmodern narratives that will be both accessible to a wide public audience and responsive to the needs of scholars? Saul Cornell
