Mapping the Mexican Midwest

I am developing a digital project that literally puts Mexican migrants and their communities on the map in the early twentieth-century Midwest. This interactive map will allow visitors to view Mexican migrant communities, institutions, and regional connections.

Dartmouth Digital History Initiative

Code on Laptop Computer

I am the project manager for the Dartmouth Digital History Initiative (DDHI), which seeks to create an open-source toolkit that makes oral histories more searchable and accessible. My work includes encoding text and audio with the Text Encoding Initiative, training others to use the TEI, building metadata infrastructure, and producing data visualizations.
