The Digital History Lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill presents The Past Presented — a show about the tools, techniques, and technologies scholars use to study the past and conversations with the folks who use them.

In Episode One, “Turning the Map”, PhD Candidate Nathan Gill talks to co-hosts Maddie McGrady and Sarah Miles about his research on human-environment relationships and systems of labor in the Ecuadorian Andes. In particular, he talks about how GIS mapping allowed him to turn the map – literally and figuratively – and reconsider assumptions about human relationships and the built environment around one of the oldest functioning hacienda’s in Ecuador: Guachalá.
