Mapping Cicero’s Letters

Mapping Cicero’s Letters

The team will be working to revise and expand an existing digital mapping project that visualizes relationships between correspondents represented in the letters of the 1st century BCE Roman statesman Cicero. The expanded project will call on students to move beyond maps and develop tabular datasets and data visualizations based on geospatial information in the letters. The team will spend time enhancing documentation developed for the initial project that will guide students on how to identify, collect, format, and interpret data from this humanities corpus. That documentation, which includes workflow handouts, screencasts, and code examples, will be assembled together as a curricular package to accompany this course.
