Science at Carleton is a project that explores the history of the science departments at Carleton College from the college’s founding in 1867, to present day. It was created by Emilee Fulton and Jocelyn Ho, as a final project for Hacking the Humanities, an interdisciplinary class which focuses understanding the basic concepts of digital humanities.
This website features two main projects: an interactive timeline and a visual analysis of the science courses offered at Carleton since 1867. Jocelyn worked mainly on data collection, by looking through Carleton’s database of academic catalogues, and Stork Photography Archive. She then compiled this information into the form of an interactive timeline. Emilee worked to create the website to host this project, preformed text analysis on various academic catalogs to determine trends in science course offerings throughout Carleton’s history, and created the facilities page, which shows all science buildings (past and present) on Carleton’s campus.
