How to Start Your DH Project

Digital Archives at Linscheid Library


Darcy Tessman from the Department of Human Development, Hospitality, and Food Science has been using cookie cutters created and printed in the Digital Humanities Lab to bake ECU branded cookies. 

John Dougherty's Typography class, in collaboration with Dana Jordan (NASNTI), designed letter print blocks on Fusion 360 and printed these blocks using the 3D printer. 


April Nesbit's Molecular Biology class, in collaboration with Dana Jordan (NASNTI), created molecular cookie cutters using a 3D printer and Fusion 360. The class also made cookies with the cookie cutters they designed!

COVID-19 Data Visualization

ECU Mathematics students Jacob Mantooth and James Norman, under the direction of Dr. Nicholas Jacob, worked with COVID-19 data to develop visualizations looking at spread of the virus throughout the United States. They developed several visualizations comparing multivariate data in scatter plots and maps. Visualizations included data on COVID-19 cases, travel data, county size, states, and face mask requirements.
