Unpacking Manuel’s

Connect your class to the Unpacking Manuel’s Project

Manuel’s Tavern has played a significant role in the politics, culture, and history of Atlanta.  Faculty and staff from local universities have created a highly detailed photo map of the tavern walls and a 3D scan of the interior of the building. Students will work to “unpack” the organic archive that has accumulated over 60 years on the walls of the bar.

The Unpacking Manuel’s project provides a local archive platform for History, English, Political Science, Art or Policy students to explore, research, and tell stories. Your students can choose artifacts they wish to research and compose content for pop-out metadata pages including text, video, interviews and links to other sources.

We have examples of assignments from classes at Emory and GSU.  Students have already created some incredible projects that will be a part of the site:
