Mapping American Realist Fiction

This project for my DGST 101 Methodology Module was my first experience both with digital mapping and with the kind of public-facing work that digital humanists engage in. I based it in the syllabus for Dr. Gary Richards’s American Realism class, which I took in Spring 2019 and which later inspired my senior honors capstone at UMW (a literary studies paper). I think TimeMapper is a less well-designed timeline tool than StorymapJS, which I used later in Dr. Jeff McClurken’s Digital History class, but I did enjoy the process of creating this map a lot! Research for this project was my first point of contact with the bigger world of the digital humanities.
