I am a doctoral student of African History at Michigan State University. This website is created for a digital humanities graduate course (HST 812: History in the Digital Age). This is my first formal engagement with digital history and I am so excited to be part of this class. Each week, I will be engaging with sets of readings and offering succinct blog posts. I am hoping to learn novel ideas and technologies, and develop an online map that will portray the movements of groups of people in West Africa from the prehistoric era to the 18th century.
Fingers crossed, I hope to produce a very good project in this class that will serve as a starting point to my dissertation project, which I will discuss in the weeks to come.
