Holidays In The Empire
Students in groups of two or three spent the length of the semester doing an in-depth reading of a 19th- or early 20th-century guidebook on Algeria. With an eye towards writing for a public audience and how to use the Web as an educational tool, they wrote a series of long and short Web entries that critically engaged their assigned texts. Using Omeka and Neatline, they then constructed a Web site centered on these write-ups and on interactive maps that allow the user to "tour" Algeria along with imperial travelers while challenging the dominant narratives of these guidebooks.
