The Susquehanna region of northern Appalachia often has often been defined (and neglected) from the outside. This program seeks to highlight the intersection of cultural landscapes and narratives with environmental systems from a perspective inside the region, emanating from the historic juncture of the north and west branches of the Chesapeake Bay's main feeder river.
The long-term goal is to develop digital interfaces to map humanities and social science data, integrating environmental science data as well. We intend to produce a dynamic multi-layered online landscape of the valley accessible for regional school districts, community groups, and university students and researchers alike. A successful cross-disciplinary university focus year at Bucknell in 2008-09 helped to articulate the program.
