New Orleans aficionados, visitors, and residents may enjoy MediaNOLA - a digital humanities project directed by Vicki Mayer, Professor of Communication at Tulane University. The centerpiece of MediaNOLA is the interactive map on its homepage, where viewers can narrow the map's results by searching via keyword or by selecting a number of parameters from various cultural history and geography categories (with the additional option of narrowing searches by time period). Examples include cultural landscapes (e.g. French Quarter, Treme), live performance and public culture (e.g. coffee houses, music clubs), and cultural policy (e.g. educational policy, civil rights policy). Many, though not all, of the map's pins lead to pages with additional information. Readers can also explore MediaNOLA through the "discover" tab, which they may find quicker than the map for finding content. Launched in 2009, MediaNOLA was conceived as "both a destination website and a [pedagogical] tool for writing and mapping history" and features curated written content produced by New Orleans community members and students of Tulane University.
