Against the Current seeks to trouble the waters. We want to disrupt the seemingly natural flow of how we understand history since it is not a stagnant force but something long and continual.

They are mediated through a 'digital page' or user interface that lets scholarly but non-technical users explore the greatly increased query potential of textual data kept in such a form.
