Explorations in Arts and Humanities; Mapping Slave Biographies and the Industries of Enslavement
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F
Restricted to first semester first year students in the College of Arts and Humanities.

This course engages students in first-hand archival, historical, and digital work on the history of enslavement in America so that we might better understand its long-reaching effects. Students will work with public databases, historical maps, and biographical materials in an effort to recover what we can of the histories of the enslaved and the industries of enslavement. Though this course takes a broad approach to American slavery, we will also pay special attention to the history of slavery in Maryland and Washington, DC.
