Michigan State University will be hosting an interdisciplinary National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute titled Data-Informed Methods in Slavery Studies from June 18 to July 14, 2023. This interdisciplinary National Endowment for the Humanities Institute will explore the opportunities and challenges of engaging in data-informed, Internet-based humanistic research and public scholarship as it applies to the study of enslaved people of African descent.

The institute organizers are researchers on Enslaved: Peoples of the Historical Slave Trade (Enslaved.org; https://enslaved.org). Higher education faculty, instructional staff, and graduate students are invited to apply. The first two weeks will be residential in East Lansing, Michigan, and the next two will be remote. Participants will receive stipends that should cover the costs of room and board in East Lansing. Application information and a complete description of the institute are on the institute’s website.

The application deadline is March 1, 2023.
