Parallel Colonialism

Project details

Year

Programme
Master Media Design: Experimental Publishing

Parallel Colonialism is a digital text archiving tool that offers a comparative reading application between historical and contemporary documents. It allows users to experience how regulatory terms play in colonialism by offering two types of legal documents: Terms of Services and historical colonial treaties.

By selecting one of each document, a parallel reading platform is enabled, in which you can comparatively label, highlight and analyze a range of specific terms. This helps you to analyze on how these documents operate similar ways in colonialism, and it opens up discussions in finding a colonial resemblance by mapping out the whole contractual landscape of terms used in each document.
