As a complement to the traditional research paper, Lucy Rosenbloom and Jason Ezell piloted a digital map-making assignment for the honors course, Beyond Stonewall: U.S. Gay Liberation. Their pedagogical project explored the potential of librarian-instructor collaborations and digital scholarship in the first year seminar. As a result, their students learned to plot historical research geographically and to share their collective work more widely, producing a far more complex map of U.S. LGBTQ+ movements than do histories which focus on a handful of iconic sites.

English faculty member Sarah Allison has published two pamphlets with the Stanford LitLab. The first pamphlet, "Quantitative Formalism" mapped nineteenth-century genres in relation to one another using multivariate analysis to re-express literary genre as set of shared stylistic features. The fifth pamphlet, "Style at the Scale of the Sentence," makes the sentence the central unit for the study of style. Both pamphlets are available at the Stanford LitLab website as well as in n+1 (here and here).
