CLACS Digital Humanities Fellow

In collaboration with UWM Libraries Digital Collections, we are pleased to share that the 2019 CLACS Digital Humanities Fellow is Dr. Michael E. Martin, an adjunct faculty member in the UWM School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP). The Havana Storytelling Project will develop an on-line electronic storytelling platform to build bridges between Cuban and U.S. students and educators. The project will integrate historic maps from the American Geographic Society (AGS), digital resources from the UWM Library Digital Collection, historic photos and reference materials into an online storytelling platform that can be used to educate users about important events in the history of the City of Havana from a place-based perspective. These stories will focus on the shared history of Cuba and the United States and will be easy-to-use, visual and educational in nature.
