Digital Studies

Websites that fall under this category fulfilled digital studies course requirements. Below are descriptions of what each site contains:

Digital Art
This website functioned as a blog that I updated regularly with artists that we studied in class. This also served as a place for me to showcase the art that I created in this course throughout the semester.

Applied Digital Studies
This website was used to inform viewers about the ‘Pink Tax’ and what states within the US are affected by it. There are three different platforms that are used to map out these differences: Google My Maps, MapChart and an SVG map that was coded with HTML and CSS to represent the different states.

American Technology and Culture
This website was also a group project that was for my History of American Technology and Culture class. My group and I had to pick an American invention, research why it was selected over other similar inventions, describe how it was relevant to society and make a short documentary to describe our findings.

Adventures in Digital History
This website was used to blog reactions to group projects within the course, and document our group’s progress as we worked to digitize a register from the Fredericksburg National Cemetery and created a user-friendly map for visitors to use.

This was a website that I coded using HTML and CSS. It was part of a methodology module that we worked on in class and mine focused on networks. This site shows the personal network that I have built here at the University of Mary Washington with the help of a KUMU map.
