Carleton College: Then and Now is a a digital humanities project on the past and present of Carleton College’s campus. We focus particularly on archival architectural plans from 1920, 1921, and 1930, and the discrepancies between the men’s and women’s proposed campuses. To highlight these, we used ArcGIS, Map Warper, and other web applications to eventually show two maps, an old one and a present day one, one on top of the other and connected by a slider tool that allowed the user to move back and forth to to discover and make comparisons between the two.
To create the site, we used a variety of tools and techniques. This included, but was not limited to WordPress, MapWarper, ArcGIS, and Zotero. It was created by Maya Kassahun, Tonya Piergies, Ana Yanes, and Clarissa Smith.
