Sheshat: A Digital Humanities Initiative in Literature, Language, and Criticism

A series of activities, including developing digital tools, conducting a summer faculty development workshop, and modifying course curricula, that would enhance humanities teaching and learning at Howard University.

“Sheshat: A Howard University Digital Humanities Initiative” aims to improve the quality of humanities teaching and learning by providing faculty (and, by extension, students) with tools that can be used to expand the parameters of humanistic inquiry. The proposed project, developed in collaboration with the College Language Association (CLA) and the Project on the History of Black Writing (HBW), will also digitize the first fifty years of College Language Association Journal (CLAJ) and select African American novels as well as redesign four existing humanities division courses that will be designated as DH specific and offered each semester at Howard University (HU).
