A digital memorial to lynching

Just today, I found a new project that covers many of the requirements I had previously outlined for a temporal and spatial representing of lynching in the U.S. Additional ideas I had, such as representing various associations between lynching and other phenomena remain worthwhile, but would require too much redundant effort to propose as a group project. Nevertheless, […]

Revised Zine Union Catalog Proposal

Based on class discussion blog comments, I have revised this proposal. The primary changes are additional information on Collective Access (see the link in the appendix), an explanation of the different catalog types, thoughts on sustainability, and tweaking of language to emphasize points and to frame the project’s uniqueness more positively.
