Rob Nelson and Making Digital Scholarship
Play episode · 1 hr 6 min
In this episode, I spoke with Robert K. Nelson, the director of the Digital Scholarship Lab at the University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia. Nelson has been at the forefront of some of the most dynamic projects linked to digital humanities in the public sphere. The DSL has developed multiple visualization projects under the umbrella of the American Panorama (AP) project. AP is described as “a historical atlas of the United States for the twenty-first century” and combines in-depth research with interactive mapping techniques. The maps on AP present data-rich visualizations that explore questions around redlining, migration, and electoral politics. As a result, the DSL has become a point of entry for digital humanities for many people.
