Ph.D. Candidate Katherine Jentleson’s work on a curator’s trip through the American south in 1935 makes use of Neatline digital timeline technology to visualize her research. The project grew out of the Wired! group’s Mapping Time & Space: Configuring Connections, Trade & Travel, Past & Present held in May 2013. Katherine’s essay earned the 2013 Archives of American Art Graduate Research Essay Prize.
