    Abstract:
    PDF copy of the syllabus for "Mapping Violence," an undergraduate course co-taught by Profs. Monica Muñoz Martinez and Jim McGrath with Teaching Assistant Edwin Rodriguez. The course draws on and contributes to work from Mapping Violence, a digital restorative justice initiative focused on acts of state-sanctioned racial violence in Texas and Mexico during the early twentieth century. "Mapping Violence" was offered to undergraduates in the American Studies and Ethnic Studies programs at Brown. This copy of the syllabus acknowledges the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and documents both the original semester plans and the revised course approach. Official course description for "Mapping Violence": Mapping Violence is a research project that aims to expose interconnected histories of violence, the legacies of colonization, slavery, and genocide that intersect in Texas in the early twentieth century. Although often segregated in academic studies, these histories coalesced geographically and temporally. Students in this course will learn interdisciplinary methods combining ethnic studies, history, public humanities and the digital humanities to rethink the limits of archival research, historical narrative, and methods for presenting findings to public audiences. This research intensive seminar will allow students to develop historical research skills and to contribute original research to the Mapping Violence project.
