    Black Histories at UGA

    The history of the university is intertwined with the lives of African Americans — and we are committed to investigating that past, even when the campus landmarks don't adequately commemorate it.

eHistory

eHistory was founded at the University of Georgia in 2011 by historians Claudio Saunt and Stephen Berry. The first project we launched was IndianNation, a crowdsource/mapping application that geolocates the 237,000 Native Americans captured in the 1900 census (the historic low point of the native population). Since then, eHistory has become a sort of digital collective -- a diverse group of scholars seeking to learn from each other as we experiment and rally on certain forms and formats of digital scholarship.

eHistory is a research cluster of UGA's Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, a core department of the Georgia Informatics Institute, and a founding member of UGA's DigiLab.
