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.
