Visualizing Emancipation is a map of slavery’s end during the American Civil War. It finds patterns in the collapse of southern slavery, mapping the interactions between federal policies, armies in the field, and the actions of enslaved men and women on countless farms and city blocks. It encourages scholars, students, and the public to examine the wartime end of slavery in place, allowing a rigorously geographic perspective on emancipation in the United States.

We the Economy project is to raise awareness and encourage discussion about the economy. The films are intended for high school-age kids, and the use of animation, music, dance, and comedy should increase interest in what is often considered to be dry and irrelevant material. There may be some confusion about the economic concepts addressed in various films that will need to be explained, and not all the films will appeal to everyone. Parents may also be concerned about the political views of some of the filmmakers.
