This collaborative project - which brings together academics from the fields History and Literature, Mapuche teachers in Chile and a creative technologist in the UK - is funded by the Brigstow Institute. It aims to make visible the complex social networks of three of the most prominent Mapuche intellectual activists in early-twentieth-century Chile: Manuel Manquilef (1887-1950), Manuel Aburto Panguilef (1887-1952) and Venancio Coñuepán (1905-1968). Through interactive digital maps it also seeks to encourage people, particularly secondary school students and teachers in Chile, to dig further into these networks.
In collaboration with Mapuche intercultural educators in Chile and an expert in digital story-telling, 'Mapping Intercultural Connections' explores innovative and exciting ways of representing the social networks of most prominent indigenous Mapuche activists in early-twentieth-century Chile: Manuel Manquilef (1887-1950), Manuel Aburto Panguilef (1887-1952) and Venancio Coñuepán (1905-1968). We want to make the history of these networks easily accessible through an online platform and to bring it to life for local and international Internet users.
