CESTA Seminar Series with Gordon Chang and Shelley Fisher Fishkin

Of what use are digitial humanities tools when there are no texts to mine, and no numbers to chart? How does one recover history without traditional historical documentation? The Chinese Railroad Workers in North America Project at Stanford turned to a variety of other source materials beyond text to develop an understanding of the lived experience of the workers. The Project collaborated with archaeologists to study what the gathered material culture of the workers could say about the quotidian conditions of labor camp life. We also explored mapping and other forms of digital based visualizations and close examination of historical photography. Without a robust data base, we had to be creative and draw from a variety of sources. We will discuss these issues and share examples of how digital technologies help us pres- ent our work.
