Dr. Don Lafreniere and Dr. Sarah Scarlett hosted an interactive brown bag talk about the Keweenaw Time Traveler project to the Department of Social Sciences at Michigan Tech. The talk outlined the progress to date on the construction of the Historical Spatial Data Infrastructure (aka- Time Machine!) and the planned activities for the next several years. There was a discussion of how we will be looking to engage Citizen Historian volunteers to help prepare data and contribute their own knowledge of Copper Country places and how the time machine can be used in research and teaching on both historic and contemporary topics in the Keweenaw.
