This week has been a little hectic with work and the constant shifts in our country’s handling of the protests and the pandemic. Still, I have managed to keep up with this site despite all of my personal issues. I added more images to my homepage and updated my Maps page. I still really need to find a good system for timelines for that aspect of the page – the final date is closing in on me for this part.
Today has been a great day in the update of this site. I started adding pictures to my definitions to liven them up a little – which has definitely helped in the creativity aspect of this assignment. As we’re moving through the 10th and 11th centuries in this class, I am noticing more shifts in religious affairs and ideologies around the world! I am excited to incorporate both Islam and Orthodox into this site.
I am very thankful that I can utilize the internet for historical studies. As someone who is aiming for public history (particularly museums), I think websites like these are going to be increasingly important [especially post Covid-19] Thanks for reading about my progress and wish me luck!
