Jacob Abbot will demo his online StoryMap tool for navigating the history of dams in the Adirondacks. He uses entries from The Adirondack Chronology along with historic maps from the Adirondack Research Library collection.

Maryam Ramjohn will present her interactive timeline in a platform called OMEKA in which she traces the evolution of Native American life in the Adirondacks. Her project is called “The Erasure of Native American Culture in the Adirondacks,” and she looks at the history of appropriation of Native places, place names, and culture.
