The 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon offers an opportunity to reflect on what we know about the Apollo era and its legacies, what we still need to learn, and how we may best record and interpret the significance of spaceflight in society today and into the future. We invite colleagues whose research and writing extend our understanding of Apollo, the Apollo era, human spaceflight, future space, and related areas to join together in assessing the current state of the field, suggesting new lenses for analysis and interpretation, and considering new paths for future scholarship.
We plan to make travel grants up to $500 to graduate students and others with demonstrable need.
We hope to catalyze new research leading to a second workshop in late 2019 and resulting in a publication before the Apollo 17 Anniversary in 2022.
