The session will feature discussions with Laura Helton and David Kim, who both received IHRC funding for 2017-18.

Kim, visiting assistant professor in digital humanities, is the lead coordinator of the Wilmington Archives Project.  Building on a series of digital scholarship workshops and initiatives sponsored by the IHRC and the UD Library in recent years, the pilot project will explore the city of Wilmington in a cluster of six courses, with three offered in spring and three in fall 2018.

The courses will be taught in conjunction with community partners, including the Creative Vision Factory and the Delaware Art Museum. Topics will focus on art and social change, environmental journalism, the 1968 occupation of Wilmington by the Delaware National Guard, sociology of art and culture, the environment and health, and a creative writing course modeled on the national StoryCorps project.

Helton, an assistant professor in the Department of English, is the recipient of an IHRC teaching grant for her course, Into the Archives. This project involves the development and delivery of an undergraduate course, “Into the Archives: The Ephemeral Langston Hughes," utilizing collections housed in the University of Delaware Library’s Department of Special Collections, and a graduate course, “The Black Atlantic and the Archive," utilizing regional collections, archivists, and scholars.
