Tim Stallmann & Mel Norton ยท Bull City 150 & Cook Center for Social Equity

In this presentation, we'll share on-going work to map 150 years of housing history in Durham for a large public history exhibit. We're developing a range of innovative approaches to historical maps, including 3D-printed maps of areas destroyed by urban renewal, using city directories to reconstruct the daily lives of oral history interviewees, and reconstructing detailed demographics using the long-form census releases. The presentation will include sharing these techniques, some practical lessons learned as well as telling some of the Bull City's story.
