Project three resembles the first two and continues the practice of creative reading and thick description that we began in Project One, though once again your objectives and analyses change. First, find a historical image of a neighborhood in your city--from ANY TIME BEFORE 1970 (images.google.com is a good place to start for this) Next, find a street-level image of this area of your city from the past 18 months (use either streetview or a google image search) Paste these into a Word doc. For this assignment: First, analyze the documents as if they are historical/archival materials: describe the images and situate them in time/place. Then, put the two representations of this area of your city into dialogue with one another. What has changed? What remains similar? What stands out? How are different histories visible? How can one begin to see changing economic realities and economic interests in the material of the city? Can you begin to perceive the existence of different user groups? Different interest groups?
