COL370’s Runawayct.org Site Launch

From the students of COL 370:

Joseph Yannielli’s Digital Humanities class (COL370) is pleased to announce the  launch of Runawayct.org this Thursday, May 15 at 1:10pm in 41 Wyllys Rm.113. Runawayct.org is a digital humanities resource for the study of runaway slaves in Connecticut, conceived and executed by the students of COL370. The site provides free access to a searchable database of runaway slave ads published in the Connecticut Courant, accompanied by scholarly content providing context and insight into slavery-era Connecticut. Runawayct.org also provides interactive features for an enriched and engaging user experience, including a maps feature for geographic visualization of data on runaways. The project is intended for use in independent research and as an educational resource to be used by Connecticut area educators in US History classes and the like.

Refreshments will be provided by the department. We’d love to see you at the launch!
