A Digital Humanities Project on COVID-19

Welcome!

Here you can find information on my Digital Humanities project. Simply click on the Blog section to find the project, the Menus button to see all the individual pages, or one of the URLs in the table of contents below.

This project is designed around the impact of the current Coronavirus pandemic, called COVID-19, on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus and the Downtown Lincoln area. We are exploring how the pandemic has affected everyday life, how students are handling it, and how we can illustrate the information through the use of digital tools such as WordPress, Flickr, and StoryMap.

There are currently ten parts of the project. Click on the hyperlink to be directed to each section.
