The Travelogue team has been navigating the URL waters (travel puns abound but URL names do not). By Monday, March 17th the URL had been decided upon and purchased. Details soon to follow (we will let you know when to begin the drum roll).
Other updates: On the Travelogue’s Commons page the Twitter feed has been updated removing the icons and making it more text based. The team is also choosing between paper texture images to be used for the Travelogue’s Commons site background, consulting with guides on 2014 web design trends. We have been actively working on the Zotero citations for the content that will be featured on the Travelogue site. Meet-ups outside of normal class hours have been scheduled. We have been outlining the research that has been done so far and what needs to be worked on. Zora Neale Hurston and Ernest Hemingway are the two American authors that the Travelogue project will initially focus on. Research wise, we are currently working on historical context, researching what was going on in the locations that they traveled to during their time there.
