Visualizing Objects, Places, and Spaces

A Digital Project Handbook

Project Lead(s): Beth Fischer, Hannah L. Jacobs

2019present

Beth Fischer (Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Digital Humanities at the Williams College Museum of Art) and Hannah L. Jacobs (Digital Humanities Specialist, Wired! Lab, Duke University) have set out to gather and share a digital project handbook with researchers and instructors in the early stages of digital project development. The outcome-in-progress is a peer-reviewed open resource we are designing to fill the gap between platform-specific tutorials and disciplinary discourse in digital humanities.

This web publication offers guidance on workflows, resources, and computational principles; topics applicable to many types of projects, including those that arise in archival, dimensional, narrative, quantitative, spatial, temporal, and network visualization projects; modular, downloadable content, allowing users to build custom annotated guides.
