With TimelineJS you can create a visually attractive timeline incorporating images, audio, video, maps, and other media. Created by the Knight Lab at Northwestern University, the tool is primarily intended for journalists but can be used in many disciplines and is particularly useful for introductory digital humanities projects. During this workshop, we will look closely at example timelines — discussing what works and what doesn't — and then work together to create our own timeline putting a modern-day issue into historical context. Throughout the workshop, we'll critically examine the possibilities and the restrictions for advancing an argument in the timeline format.
Note: This workshop was rescheduled from Tuesday, April 7 to Tuesday, April 14.
