I’ve been a part of the lab since Spring of 2013, first on the “Mapping the City: A Stranger’s Guide,” exhibit in Perkins Library at Duke University  then on the “Defining Lines: Cartography in the Age of Empire,” exhibit at the Nasher Museum of Art, and now on the “Mapping Sovereignty” project. The BorderWork(s) Lab has been a wonderful forum for learning research, public history and digital humanities in an interdisciplinary and interactive environment, and I am indebted to it for exposure to an amazing group of researchers and unique research opportunities.
