I’ve been lucky enough to be able to participate in many projects that have produced work that I am proud to share. Below are links to each project with a description of what each project is.
Through my connection with St. Mary’s University I have been able to learn how to use the Omeka software and create pages for St. Mary’s University School of Law website. I created a timeline of important events in the history of the Law School and wrote short descriptions of the events.
For my History of the American West and Borderlands class I was required, along with my classmates, to present on three projects we completed over the course of the semester.
- I presented a poster on Old Spanish Trail anniversary event that should be analyzed for it’s racist portrayal of Native Americans.
- My second project was a map that I created plotting important events in labor activist Emma Tenayuca’s life.
- The third was a PowerPoint on prostitution in the Old West, focusing on Ah Toy and Eleanor Dumont as examples.
This is a link to the map I presented for my class mentioned above. It focuses on important events in the life of Emma Tenayuca, a woman who fought for labor rights in San Antonio, Texas. It charts her life from her childhood spent with her grandfather to her flight from San Antonio in the wake of Anti-Communist reactions to her eventual return to San Antonio, where she died.
This is a COVID-19 archive that myself and my classmate, Mikel Baxter, created for one of our first classes in our M.A. program. It reflects the experiences of those studying online during the COVID-19 pandemic and details the difficulties they have been going through, such as isolation, fear of sickness and a decrease in interest in classes.
