Funding and Opportunities

#DigBlk is committed to preserving Black organizing histories in the long nineteenth century and to building future generations of Black scholars who advocate for social justice in higher education, repositories, museums, and beyond. #DigBlk is a public-facing research center committed to bringing the histories of nineteenth-century Black organizing to digital life through collaborative scholarship and project-based research. The Center is home to the award-winning Colored Conventions Project, Douglass Day, and the newly-launched early Black Women’s Organizing Archive.

#DigBlk provides opportunities for students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty to join our research teams and work with an interdisciplinary, cross-institutional team of 30-35 members who meet regularly on collaborative research that includes digital archive-building, crowd-sourced transcription projects, community-arts partnerships, and scholarly and digital editions.
