Jim Casey

Perkins Postdoctoral Fellow

Jim Casey is postdoctoral research associate of the Center for Digital Humanities.

At Princeton, he will develop a project titled “A Committee of the Whole: Social Networks of the Early Black Republic of Letters.” The project engages academic and public collaborators across the country to gather and explore data on the social networks of early African American communities—including schools, churches, newspapers, anti-slavery societies and the Underground Railroad. The project will blend public humanities outreach with digital research methods to rediscover a longer history of collective Black activism in the United States.
