  • Guadalajara Censuses Project(896 clicks)
    The Guadalajara Censuses Project (GCP) is an experiment in the preservation and public access to the historical resources of two nations who share a common border yet who are often divided by differences in language, culture and history. In much the same sense, this project is an exercise in building a bridge between the humanities and the often presumed foreign, and at times even feared, "universe" of statistics. We began at Florida State University as a graduate seminar in the history of urban Mexico; we have become a multi-national, inter-disciplinary enterprise providing bilingual public access to the rich statistical resources of Guadalajara, Mexico. For the history of the GCP, see History of the Guadalajara Censuses Project.
