I am a founding member of the Rebellions in the African Diaspora Project, a multidisciplinary study of Black rebellion in the 18th- and 19th-century Atlantic world. This project, which was recently awarded a $50,000 (USD) Incubating Interdisciplinary Initiatives (I3) Grant at the University of Oregon, is currently in the data collection and modeling stage. Our goal is to build a large-scale digital humanities platform focused on transcriptions of journalistic coverage of Black rebellions during this historical period.

In alignment with my participation in the RAD Project described above, I recently taught a section of English 468/568 (Black Rebellions) with an emphasis on digital humanities methodology. As the capstone project for this hybrid graduate/advanced undergraduate seminar, I empowered students to design individual digital exhibits for a course site. Students collectively crafted a framework for the site - Fragmented Rebellions - and drafted a mission statement to theorize their digital engagement with the people, histories, and events that they collectively studied.
