Professional Development Program Type
Professional Development Program Audience
This interdisciplinary NEH Institute will explore the opportunities and challenges of engaging in data-informed, Internet-based humanistic research and public scholarship as it applies to the study of enslaved people of African descent. The institute organizers are researchers on Enslaved.Org. Aimed at higher education faculty, instructional staff, and graduate students, the institute is structured in two-parts: a two-week on-site focusing on the state of the field, recommended practices, and hands-on methods for dataset creation; then two-week virtual component during which participants work on a historical dataset, with continued presentations from experts, support from institute staff and peers, and an opportunity to share preliminary findings.
