Story+ 2022 | Nuestra Historia, Nuestra Voz: Latinx at Duke
Over the past two years students in classes taught by Prof. Cecilia Márquez and Prof. Joan Munné have worked to create the first-of-its-kind exhibit in the Chappel Family Gallery in Perkins Library entitled “Nuestra Historia, Nuestra Voz: Latinx at Duke.” This exhibit documents the long history of Latinx students at Duke University. This Story+ team continued the important work started by this exhibit by producing a pilot website that documents the physical exhibit and using those materials to create new digital content. This website will be used in future courses and for future researchers. This project weaved together public humanities and digital humanities skills to produce a dynamic hub for the continued exploration of the rich history of Latinx's at Duke University and the region more broadly.
