Please join us for a presentation by the 2016/17 Digital Scholarship Faculty Fellow, Monica Najar, on her project “Mapping the Evangelization of the Southwest, 1755-1815.”  Using GIS, Professor Najar’s project maps evangelical Baptist churches in the Upper South.  Using the founding of Baptist churches (the fastest growing evangelical sect) as a marker, this project uses mapping tools to compare and understand the geographic growth of evangelical churches in relationship to the expansion of civil authority.

Location: CITL Commons (EWFM 370)
