While you’re working on this, I’ll come around and talk to you about your progress with Project 2

Project 2 Studio

You have the afternoon to work on this project!


  • Continue working on Project 2, please have this coded into a site for next week, make sure this is linked on your Portfolio page. You should spend between 3-4 hours on this. Using basic CSS and HTML is totally okay, but it should contain both your image and your written content.
  • If you’re feeling rusty on HTML/CSS, I’d recommend taking some time with the HTML / CSS tutorials that Lynda has online to boost your skills with website coding. One great one is here, but search around for other ones on HTML as well. You have free access to this through Rutgers.
  • Read The View from Above, HyperCities: Thick Mapping in the Digital Humanities, by David Shepard, Todd Samuel Presner, and Yoh Kawano, and write a response here, please put down Week 8
