Feb. 20, 2013 – Exhibit Text and Images, and the Historiographical Essay

I have had a pretty productive week.  I finished drafting my text for my online exhibit, got it proof-read and made edits.  I also have a complete set of images that will accompany the text in the exhibit. 

I have decided to introduce my exhibit with some information about Rose Fortune.  She was a Black entrepreneur in Nova Scotia during the 1800s and there is a nice watercolour painting of her.  I am going to conclude with some information about Dr. Carrie Best who was a journalist and author from the 1900s, also from Nova Scotia.  This makes it sound like I am focusing on Nova Scotia, but I actually also have images from British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick.  As well, I have some maps and diagrams.

So, at this point, I am ready to start posting stuff online.  I just need now to confirm whether I will be using Omeka.net or Omeka.org.  I can always stay with the .net product.  It just won’t be as flexible for presenting my information.

I also made a start on my historiographical essay.  I have cut and pasted my notes into a roughly correct order, according to the outline that we discussed earlier, and now need to go back and turn it into a real essay.  I am missing some examples – good evidence and proof of some parts of my argument – that I still need to go back into my sources to find.

So this week will be devoted to my essay and to confirming the exhibit software product.
