Featured Projects

  • Digitizing the Marginalia of John Stuart Mill

    This project is being conducted in partnership with the Special Collections division of the Library of Somerville College, Oxford, which houses the library of John Stuart Mill and his father, James Mill. We are working together to create a multi-faceted open access digital resource showcasing the manuscript marginalia written in texts by both J. S. Mill and his father, enabling researchers and students to read these alongside scholarly writing about these materials. The website will also furnish researchers with a suite of supporting materials giving context to the marginalia, and more broadly the rest of Mill’s holdings.

  • Campus Historical Markers

    Many people, places, and events which left an impression on the University of Alabama and surrounding community have been commemorated in historical markers and plaques around the campus. This is a collection of those public accounts of our history, in both image and text. Sections include Antebellum Campus, Confederate Commemoration, University Integration, Building Names, Fraternities & Sororities, and Other Historical.

  • Dirt Poor

    Dr. Karen Gardiner's EN 455 (Advanced Studies in Writing) course has students recovering family stories from the Great Depression, contextualizing the person they study into their historical and cultural context, and then writing essays that convey that information to a wider audience. The class website maps these stories, as well as archiving the essays the students crafted about their family members to serve as an archive of their lives during the Great Depression.
