Finally have some ideas, and looking forward to exploring with the students for the upcoming Spring 2018 course. Feel much better about what I am trying to accomplish with the class.
Digital Humanities Course Project
I am going to introduce students to the Tools Timeline JS and Story Maps. The goal is to have students complete singular projects involving mapping Black British subjects who traveled extensively throughout the Atlantic World and some in South America including Mary Prince, Albert Gronniosaw, Ignatius Sancho, Ottobah Cuango, Olaudah Equiano. In the story we can discuss their lives at each point, their status, their family life, historical markers. In addition, as a group project have me and the students digitally map Frederick Douglass, William Wells, Brown, Ida B. Wells.
I will also initiate use of the NCCU digital lab and research field trips to Perkins Library.
