Applying Named Entity Recognition to Explore Louisiana Slave Conspiracies

Frameworks for linking and analyzing documents dealing with slave conspiracies (defined as planned or actual insurrections against slave owners) to help resolve questions and uncertainties in historical accounts.

We are a multidisciplinary research project dedicated to preserving, digitizing, transcribing, translating, publishing, and analyzing manuscripts from three Louisiana slave conspiracies. We are presenting these manuscripts, with original transcription and translation, alongside interactive, data-driven maps in an effort to address essential but still unresolved questions about the organization of social relations and the circulation of ideas in these conspiracies.
