Critical Approaches to Place: Teaching Narrative Mapping in Southern New Mexico

A two-year project to develop curriculum integrating geography, English, and digital humanities.

“Critical Approaches to Place: Teaching Narrative Mapping in Southern New Mexico” is a three-year curriculum development and public engagement project organized by collaborators from New Mexico State University (NMSU)’s Geography and English departments. It includes a faculty development workshop, which will help instructors from diverse disciplines develop digital story mapping assignments that support first-generation, multilingual, and binational students in unique ways. Additional project components include: a new geohumanities course co-taught by the project directors, a public lecture series, and a bilingual public exhibit developed in partnership with the Las Cruces Museum System that highlights student work. Taking Story Maps as a common starting place helps faculty participants, students, and community partners develop stronger relationships with one another and understand how the humanities provide essential insights into place and global environmental challenges.
