A Digital Ethnography of the Inhabitants and Environment along Florida's Silver River

Preparation of a digital ethnography of the Silver River in Florida.

Key to interpreting who belongs and which part of a hybrid identity is allowed to belong is Chicana feminist Gloria Anzaldúa’s concept borderlands. This concept which helps identify and navigate multiple worlds of geographic and cultural identity formation guides this interactive, web-based, mixed-media monograph. Additionally, I rely on evocative ethnography, a decolonial, feminist visual anthropology approach that I have pioneered to reveal some of the multifaceted historical, crosscultural and multispecies layers of Florida’s Silver River. This born-digital project, which allows for the integration of video, text, hyperlinks, audio and graphics, is better equipped to negotiate the representations of some of the layers of identity formation that are fragmented, hybrid and emergent. These stories and the evocative ways they are represented are critical for excavating and interpreting Florida and American history that highlight the contributions of the under-represented.
