Borderlands Archives Cartography

Dedicated to locate, map and facilitate the access to nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries digital newspapers from the United States and Mexico border region. Through visualizations, BAC's digital map projects the geographic location of the publishing newspaper establishments which can be found in BAC's website, along with other information to provide deeper understanding from a transnational historical and archival context. The objective is to bring to the forefront the history of the borderlands and its communities before and after the current division line was established in order to expand the notion of borders, methodologies, data analysis and the use of archival material leading to new forms of interdisciplinary research.
