DH Open Office Hours: Mapping Residents of Historic Boston
Molly Nebiolo, Ph.D. student in the Department of History, will present a project mapping historic Boston in 1676 and visualizing information about each resident that lived in the North End at that time. She will share her process for digitizing a map from the Massachusetts Historical Society and the online Thwing Archive, combining the two to create an interactive presentation of life in the historic North End.
DH Open Office Hours are a weekly meeting of students, faculty and scholars working in the Digital Humanities at Northeastern. Attendees will leave with an understanding of DH practices or theories, new projects or works in progress, and resources.
