Past, Present, Prison

Faculty: Carol Neel

This website presents the research of twenty-six Colorado College students in the Cañon City archives during the fall of 2016. The site includes essays, maps, and interactive timelines, that represent American incarceration as it has developed since the late nineteenth-century on the ground in Southern Colorado.

Policing Male Homosexuality: 18th Century Paris

Faculty: Tip Ragan

This project, based on thousands of police records located in several Parisian repositories, involves the creation of a database that will allow students and scholars to analyze patterns and changes in same-sex relations from the 1720s to the 1780s and a website including explanatory essays, images, an extensive bibliography, and more. We want not only to explore, describe, and visualize the sodomitical subculture on its own terms but also to connect it with the larger society in many ways: immigration, age and class structures, employment and unemployment, gender, urban space, prostitution, public and private matters, social control and personal agency.

Scholarly Networks of the Islamic World

Faculty: Jane Murphy

Based on biographies written by Islamic scholar Al-Jabarti (c.1800), this project explores student teacher relationships, as well as individuals' relation to texts and subjects in the Islamic world during the 18th century.
