Glenn Hinson will discuss The Descendant’s Project, which seeks to better memorialize individuals who were killed in lynchings through student research and engagement with descendants.
A team led by Banu Gökarıksel will talk about Mapping Karen Parker’s Journal, a StoryMaps project that contextualizes major events found in the journal of Karen Parker, UNC’s first Black woman undergraduate student, in order to highlight her activism for gender and racial equity and civil rights.
The Digital South is a project of the University Libraries that aims to foster collaborative and meaningful engagement between scholars that are using digital methods to study the American South. Each panel will consist of two or more scholars sharing about their projects and answering questions from a moderator and the audience. Panel topics are concerned with histories of oppression and resistance in the South while exploring a wide range of available digital methodologies.
