Mapping the Missions: The Jesuit-Guaraní Republic, 1754-2000

Daryle Williams, Associate Professor of History, worked with MITH on an interactive digital historical atlas of the Jesuit-Guaraní missions (located in the Paraná-Uruguay watershed, along the borders of Argentina, Brazil, and Paraguay). Making use of text encoding, image mapping, and interactive media technology, the atlas explores the missions’ evolution from remote colonial-era missionary settlements to UNESCO World Heritage sites. A parallel objective is the integration of textual and visual sources in humanistic scholarship.
