Building Literacy and Curating (Critical Cultural) Knowledge in Black Humanities: BLACK DH

Building of a digital hub and virtual community to support humanities research, teaching, and public engagement using digitized collections of African American literature available in the History of Black Writing project.

At a time when DH extends its reach into all areas of scholarly research and production, and with discussions of race more central than ever to academic and public discourse, the DH community must account for the ways in which it provides access to experiences and materials that have been marginalized. In response to this need, the Project on the History of Black Writing seeks funding for Building Literacy and Curating [Critical Cultural] Knowledge in Digital Humanities (BLACK DH), a 3-year project in community building that removes economic, social and technological barriers to DH learning and provides space for dialogue, debate, advancing knowledge and generating public-facing scholarship. Driven by 3 goals: building knowledge networks, content creation and pipeline development, BLACK DH will focus on the use of black materials to explore questions of humanity and diversity in American society through the increased involvement of those who remain outside the current DH network.
