Street Walking by Handsome Dan

In this first paragraph, I provide a synopsis of my argument and provide the larger context that is necessary to understand my exhibit. I am also explicit about how my exhibit engages the question of Latino/a mobility in California history. I do so in a rigorous yet accessible manner. My digital exhibit features three media objects that 1) provide evidence for an academic argument and 2) visualize that argument for an engaged public audience. 

Visual 1 Photo Essay of Dog Walkers

Caption: In my caption, I credit the source of my object and provide an analysis of its content. Most audiences will read no more than 150 words, so I aim to be informative and concise. Every word counts so I want to choose visuals that double as evidence. This photo essay, for instance, could demonstrate a key argument by grouping like pictures that underscore a theme I've identified in the archive. I can upload photographs, documents, music, and videos directly from the archive. When using primary sources, I will create the relevant metadata and will be prepared to make a fair-use argument.

Visual 2 Annotated Map of Dog Park

Caption: Maps can be valuable tools for relaying information when accompanied by annotations. In this example, I can use a historic map to make an argument about the ways space is used to facilitate certain types of movement while discouraging others. For more on annotations, see Scalar's User Guide

Visual 3 Interview by Handsome Dan with Dog Park Advocate

Caption: I can also create my own primary sources, such as interviews, oral histories, poems, photographs, cognitive maps, or drawings. If conducting interviews, I will want to discuss permissions with my professor.
