Abstract:
Since the digital revolution in the 1990s, scholars are increasingly debating the use of digital technologies in their research and data dissemination. This new era of scholarship, "digital humanities", has promoted the use of data visualization, info-graphics, data animation and interactive maps to promote and make visible scholarship. This thesis uses digital technologies to explore the possibilities for digitalizing modern Mexican history. By using Mexican historical events as case studies, it argues that data visualizations promote the accessibility of scholarly research and a more popular history, while remaining transparent.
