Fellowship Description: 

Laura Rediehs (Associate Professor, Philosophy) used this fellowship to explore how digital tools such as timelines or concept mapping might help students and researchers better understand the networks of influence that shaped important philosophical discussions and debates during the modern period of philosophy (the 17th and 18th centuries).  This period marked a crucial time when science, theology, and philosophy began to separate into different disciplines.  Finding ways to visually represent how the intellectual landscape was changing during this time would be helpful in teaching Modern Philosophy and would enhance or could even inspire new methods of historically-informed philosophical research.
