Mapping Frederick Douglass
African American abolitionists made an indelible mark on nineteenth-century Britain. Their lectures were held in famous meeting halls, taverns, the houses of wealthy patrons, theatres, and churches across the country. Britons inevitably and unknowably walk past sites with a rich history of black activism every day. In this talk, Hannah-Rose Murray will discuss what digital humanities methods offer social historians, particularly when it comes to making activist histories more visible.
Hannah-Rose Murray received a Ph.D. from the Department of American and Canadian Studies at the University of Nottingham and is currently a Fellow at the Gilder Lehrman Centre at Yale.
This event is open to the public.
All are welcome to attend. #yaledh
