Map a Timeline is an experiment in three inter-related areas of digital humanities education:
1. Using visual maps to apprehend and elicit temporal and other relationships amongst a given series of events, texts, persons, or things which share a date as one attribute. The sample series for this experiment is a series of readings from a syllabus.
3. Incorporating analytical and representational features that promote a critical inquiry of the data, the visualizations, and the technology. The primary features enabling this critical inquiry are annotations for every item in the series and a listing of the provenance of the technologies and data used.
