Domain (Reaching Out): ALV
This course is directly affiliated with the W&M Sharpe Participatory Mapping Project (hereinafter referred to as the Sharpe Mapping project), led by Dr. Monica D. Griffin and Dr. Shannon White.   Students will have the opportunity to use GIS mapping tools (such as ArcGIS and StoryMaps) to make sense of qualitative and quantitative data about WJCC and surrounding areas, organizations, and communities.  They will identify and document the particular ways that W&M is situated within a broader system of relationships in Williamsburg-James City County; and they will interact with others (e.g. residents, scholars, leaders, etc.) in local settings to imagine and invite new ways of engaging the region’s past, present, and future for addressing social issues.
