Nicholas Bauch is the Geographer-in-Residence at the Spatial History Project at Stanford University. He is a cultural geographer whose work brings digital techniques to bear on the art of landscape interpretation. In this lecture, Bauch discussed Enchanting the Desert, his upcoming digital monograph based on a single historical document: a slideshow made by commercial photographer Henry G. Peabody between 1899-1930 at the Grand Canyon of Arizona. The project reconstructs Peabody’s slideshow in an interactive medium, allowing readers place the slides in a greater geographical context.  The photographs are used to open up the expanse of the Grand Canyon itself, laying bare the European-American project of remaking this space, focusing on specific territories within the vast region to tell the story in a spatially organized narrative.  When readers encounter this work, they can expect to uncover a pattern language that describes a new cultural becoming of this great landscape. Using the established medium of the website application, Enchanting the Desert introduces a genre of scholarship: the born-digital interactive monograph.
