How to Ghost Hunt In History

Although I eventually traced Bonnie Johnson through participation in  a famous conference, her writing and photographs that appeared in feminist periodicals, and her study of women’s history,  the organization of this project is intended to reflect the often circular and frustrating aspects of my research process.   

Building on Scalar’s deeper infrastructure, I’ve embedded links to pages of the project (indicated by the color purple) within pages.  The content on the embedded pages becomes visible when the cursor passes over these links.  This sense of interrupted narrative, and glimpses of information, is similar to what I experienced while researching.  I have not included footnotes, but rather have harnessed Scalars ability to pull content in from partner archives, which appear as page insets or  external links (blue) to my sources.

Early readers indicated a desire for some signposts.  I added a numbered sequence (from 1-21) to the titles of the pages to allow the reader to approximate the location of each page in the larger narrative. The menu bar to the left has been repurposed to provide minimal guidance to the start and to the end of the project, as well as to the spatial/temporal navigation aid I created which has links to pages.

The reader can therefore explore this project sequentially, chronologically, or by wandering at will via the links and embedded pages.   

The comments function of Scalar offered the ability to include multiple perspectives.  I am deeply indebted to the early readers who offered their comments and invite you to participate as well.
