On The Line

I’ve been fortunate enough to look over the shoulders of  a project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and featured in the Chronicle of Higher Education.  The project titled “On The Line” is an online, interactive history of schooling, housing and civil rights in the city of Hartford, Connecticut that was created by Jack Dougherty of Trinity College.  What makes this online text ‘spatial’ is the series of interactive Google Maps linked to historical redlining documents, as well as view historical photos in Historypin,  and examine historical data in linked map viewers.

The site also provides a series of excellent lesson plans ready for educators to use in the classroom.

I love Geography. I really like transportation geography and I generally like doing outside things. I'm always up for chit-chatting on any topic so go ahead and contact me if you want!
