GO LOCAL: YORK COUNTY, MAINE
From 2017-2019, I served as a consultant for the NEH and IMLS-funded project “Go Local,” which was designed to build capacity for public history at small museums and libraries in York County, Maine. For this project, I taught three workshops: one on digital preservation, one on outreach strategy, and one on ArcGIS StoryMaps. I also advised on the building of a collaborative digital tour for the region. The website for that tour, which is a CurateScape site, can be found here.
OMOHUNDRO INSTITUTE FOR EARLY AMERICAN HISTORY AND CULTURE
I have taught two DH workshops for OIEAHC at their annual conference. The first workshop (2019) was to teach historians the basics of digital preservation and data management. The workshop also taught participants how to use Zotero and Tropy to manage their research and other output. I created a guide (found here) for historians who were unable to attend the workshop. The second workshop (2021) taught participants the basics of data wrangling using OpenRefine, and offered a gentle introduction to Palladio for data visualization.
SUFFRAGE AT SIMMONS
I was the consultant on a multiyear public humanities project led by my colleague, Laura Prieto, in conjunction with an undergraduate Field Experience course. I taught them some common digital public history tools, such as Omeka. This Suffrage at Simmons exhibit was produced as part of their work.
