Congratulations to Jeffrey Himpele, Director of VizE Lab for Ethnographic Data Visualization, recipient of a research partnership grant from The Center for Digital Humanities. Himpele will collaborate with CDH staff on his project, "Visualizing Lenapehoking History in Princeton." Himpele's project is to create a series of interactive visualizations tracing the history of the land on which Princeton stands. The visualizations, which will include maps and visual stories, will disrupt conventional settler-focused narratives, emphasizing instead the presence of Native histories during the establishment of the University and the role of present-day Native communities in preserving the land. Over the course of the partnership term, the CDH will consult on software and other technical solutions to bring the visualizations to life. The visualizations will ultimately appear on the Princeton Indigenous Studies website.
