After Slavery project website launched

Posted on 05/08/2009
The After Slavery Project, a transatlantic research collaboration involving Bruce Baker at RHUL and historians at Queen's University Belfast, the University of Memphis, and The Citadel, and funded by a multi-year grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, launched its 'Online Classroom' -- a set of ten online units that explore the aftermath of emancipation in the Carolinas. The teaching units, organized thematically to cover a range of compelling topics, offer students and educators a unique new online resource–accessible, attractive, and attuned to the best of recent scholarship, richly illustrated and with an array of compelling primary source materials from dozens of archival collections. According to Eric Foner, "This engaging website combines the most up-to-date scholarship on the aftermath of slavery with a set of provocative and fascinating documents and other materials ideal for classroom use. It will allow a broad online readership to understand where our thinking now stands on this pivotal moment in American history."
