the material, including libraries. The lookout tower in Image 3 has long since been replaced by a massive central dome, with a large Mexican flag emblazoned on its eastern side, directly in front of Gallery 4, which houses the vast majority of archival documentation from the colonial period (see. The project quickly expanded as Tilton connected with a broad network of workshop founders and teachers, filmmakers and their families, and archivists and scholars. 24 Building a digital and interpretative bridge by placing related collections in conversation, PM aggregates materials from cultural-heritage institutions, local nonprofits, individuals, and more traditional archives. It outlines a participatory process of archival development informed by the emerging field of digital public humanities (DPH) and our research on the history of participatory media-making in the United States. We hope that this volume will engage in a discussion from a range of disciplines to consider how critical issues central to the nature, construction, and experience of the archive can reveal not only new sources but also raise fundamental questions about the definition. They all relate to the conceptual category of the sins against nature, but exactly how they fit within the larger history of (homo)sexuality is never quite clear. Therefore, every stage of the project involves collaborating with people involved in the original media-making in the 1960s and 1970s in order to embed their participatory practices in the public presentation of their films and other media in the present. Does this work experience influence their career path? What if the work students were being hired to do was considered essential to their educational experience and the mission of their universities? In the digital humanities, students are being guided by faculty to identify and study research questions using new technologies in partnership with their peers.
How might the hidden learning that students are experiencing behind the scenes in special collections libraries and archives be connected to the digital humanities and the Library Commons? First Days Project, for example, shares the stories of immigrants first days in the United States. This record refers to an enslaved mulato man named Roque who was denounced to the Inquisition for having committed several sinful and heretical acts. Nothing is more troubled and more troubling.

If we think about the AGN as a place that is haunted by the past, then it is indelibly marked by what Anne McClintock has termed imperial ghosting, that is, those disturbances in history comprised of administered forgettings, guarded and unspeakable secrets, that nonetheless leave. However, the effective merging of DH and PH into DPH involves drawing some lines, because these decisions change how we formulate, approach, and present our objects of study.
