Abstract

This Interactive Qualifying Project used data visualization and mapping to interpret early American captivity narratives from the Evans TCP archive. Using Neatline we developed data point maps to help analyze the deeper context of captivity narratives and how their content was influenced by the time period. Excel was used to develop graphs that supports the data mapped and provided further analysis of the captivity narratives. This project aims to provide the scholarly community with a tool that will help them understand and contextualize the captivity narrative.
