Description

Sparked during a conversation about classroom applications of digital scholarship, this project combines an important social justice issue with digital tools. Since Fall 2017, Gender Studies students, with the support of the Navari Family Center for Digital Scholarship, have collected data in the field, locating and evaluating the single-occupancy all-genders bathrooms on Notre Dame's campus to create a map that helps members of the campus community find the facilities they need. These data have been collated into a database and a webmap (https://genderstudies.nd.edu/bathrooms/). While the project has met with significant support and success, we will also present on future directions and ways this work can be extended to other campuses with similar needs.
