Representing Migration through Digital Humanities

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Charlotte Sussman and team members

From 2017-2019, the Representing Migration Humanities Lab worked to excavate the histories and presents of human mobility, investigating how this phenomenon, which is central to the making of the modern world, entered culture, consciousness and memory through narrative, memoir, archive, history and memorial. A 2019-20 Bass Connections project continues the work of the lab and builds on the 2019 Data+ summer project.

This presentation, part of the Wednesdays at the Center series, is sponsored by the John Hope Franklin Center and the Duke University Center for International and Global Studies. A light lunch will be served. Parking is available in nearby Trent Rd. and Erwin Rd. parking decks. The series provides 1-hour parking vouchers to guests.
