Story Maps and the Digital Humanities

Blog Post created by ressinger-esristaff Employee on Sep 7, 2018

Digital Humanities involve the application of computer technology to explore issues and questions in the humanities (history, culture, literature, the arts, etc). 


Esri Story Maps are gaining in popularity as a means to feature research and present narratives in this exciting and expanding field, with use by students, educators, academics, archivists, librarians, museum curators, and the wider storytelling community. Story Maps for the Digital Humanities include academic research, historical studies, personal narratives, and archival artwork, with subjects ranging from racial discrimination in housing to the geography of hip-hop.


We've curated a collection of story maps that showcases some examples in this field that we hope will inspire you to present your own work using Story Maps. There's also an accompanying blog post about Story Maps and the Digital Humanities by Allen Carroll, founder of Esri's Story Maps team.
