Digital Project

For my digital project, I am writing about the impact of Dorothea Dix’s crusades in Massachusetts in order to understand why she was considered a successful reformer. One thing from the beginning that I noticed was that after her time in MA, her name was known pretty widely, but I hope to understand what specifically happened in Massachusetts because of her work.

I am planning on creating an interactive map (through a site called MapHub) that contains locations/information about her time in Massachusetts in order to show her crusades and her successes. Alongside other documents and images, I hope to tell the story of her success rather than just laying out the facts in word format.
