Digital Paxton: Digital Collection, Critical Edition, and Teaching Platform

Public Outreach

While Digital Paxton is intended to serve scholars, it is by design a public digital humanities project. To promote public engagement, Will Fenton regularly presents updates to a range of audiences at a host of different platforms. 

The project, and resulting graphic novel Ghost River: The Fall and Rise of the Conestoga, have been featured in academic journals (American QuarterlyCommon-placeJournal of Interactive Teaching & Pedagogy), general interest publications (Albuquerque JournalPennLive.comPhiladelphia Inquirer, and WHYY), special interest publications (American IndianEducation Week, History News Magazine, and Humanities Magazine), podcasts (Code Switch and Our Fake History), and other media (C-SPAN and Pennsylvania Cable Network).

Artwork for the graphic novel were even featured in Ken Burns's latest documentary on Benjamin Franklin.
