My topic for the course presentation is on the use of maps to analyze myths from different cultures. I personally don’t think it has as many practical applications as with Vivek or Matt’s ideas, but in the world of the digital humanities, it would be very interesting to see if the power of today’s software and technology can piece together or lead to new understandings of world cultures through the medium of mythology or folktales.
I ended up being rather liberal with the length of my presentation, without the time constraints of class time, but I hope you enjoy the presentation nonetheless. Captured it using Camtasia, which I would definitely recommend in how easy it is to use, although the free trial lasts for 30 days. Good luck to those presenting on December 3rd!
