This Scalar book examines the early history of the Roswell Museum as a Federal Community Art Center. Featuring period documents and photographs, this book invites viewers to explore the Roswell Museum’s history in an open-ended manner that emulates the process of archival research while providing also context through text and visualizations. This project was the final assignment for a Digital Humanities seminar, taken in the fall of 2018.
This digital exhibit explores the complex histories of world maps as political, economic, and scientific objects through a selection of works from the Mariners’ Museum collection. The exhibit features more than twenty different examples spanning from the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries. This project developed out of an assistantship at the Mariners’ Museum during the 2018-2019 academic year.
Project members: Erika Cosme, website designer; Sara Woodbury, content writer; Bill Barker, map consultant.
