Digital Humanities Projects and Collections -- Introduction
The digital humanities has provided ways for students and faculty to generate information that can be used to deepen our understanding of slavery and its legacy. These projects often transform the existing documentation and description to provide another means of access to the experiences of enslaved, free, and freed Blacks. The projects described below created searchable databases of documents supplemented by essays, maps, and other visualizations that can help place the documents in historical context. Georgetown faculty, students and staff have contributed to several of these projects, particularly those that use resources held by Booth. For student projects, please see the Slavery, Memory, and Reconciliation: Library Resources page.
