SPAN 630: Seminar in Hispanic Studies, taught by Benjamin Fraser is an interdisciplinary digital humanities-centered course conducted in Spanish at the graduate level. Course assignments focused on Madrid's central artery - The Gran Vía - an emblem of urban modernity that plays an explicit and implicit role in numerous cultural products from the 20th century. Students reviewed a variety of visual texts and collaborated with Professor Benjamin Fraser and library faculty Jolanda-Pieta van Arnhem to create the Gran Vía Madrid Digital Humanities exhibit and interactive map using Omeka and Neatline during spring 2014. This brief introductory video by Professor Benjamin Fraser introduces the Gran Vía Madrid Digital Humanities project.
The project is hosted by the Digital Scholarship and Services (DSS) Department at the College of Charleston Libraries.
This project is an exploration of community theatre in Charleston South Carolina. Using the definition of community theatre as "a theatrical organization that is non-commercial, nonprofessional and locally based," and defining non-commercial and non-professional theatre as "a theatrical organization that is not-for-profit and does not pay its actors," this project will look at the challenges that face the Footlight Players in mounting a production in Charleston. The Footlight Players is one of the oldest community theatres in South Carolina, and is one of only a few non-commercial, completely non-professional theatres operating in Charleston.
