Mapping Oral History: How to Create a Free Online Story Atlas with Atlascine


Atlascine is a free, online and open-source software developed to map collections of stories. Through the full interaction between media and maps, Atlascine offers new ways of navigating within and between audiovisual stories. Here, the map is envisioned not only as a way to reveal places described in stories, but also to expand the possibilities of listening, visualizing and making connections between stories. During this workshop participants will learn how to create a free online atlas of stories with Atlascine. More specifically, they will learn how to connect audiovisual files with transcripts; how to tag these transcripts to generate maps and how to use these maps to visualize, connect and listen to stories. This workshop will present a live demonstration of the different steps required to set up an online atlas of stories with Atlascine. No particular material is required from the participants: the workshop is geared towards participants who might be interested in developing their own atlas based on stories/interviews they already have or that they plan to collect.
