Kate Elswit, "Moving Bodies, Moving Culture" 

Blog containing a series of exploratory visualizations based on the 1941 South American tour of American Ballet Caravan. The posts begin with a bit about the datasets, and include maps based on modes of transportationhistorical basemaps, and dancers' imaginations.


Amy E. Hughes, Naomi J. Stubbs, and Scott D. Dexter, "A Player and a Gentleman: The Diary of Harry Watkins, Nineteenth-Century US American Actor"

Public home of the digital/critical edition of the diary of US actor, manager, and playwright Harry Watkins (1825-1894). The project consists of a one-volume print edition featuring selections from the diary, edited and corrected in accordance with best practices recommended by the Association for Documentary Editing (ADE); and a searchable online edition featuring the entire text of the manuscript, encoded in XML using a custom Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) schema.


Derek Miller, "Visualizing Broadway"

Website-in-progress featuring Broadway production histories to take a longitudinal approach to theater history that encompasses failed and average shows, as well as successes. Lots of charts! I'm working in SQL and Python.
