From the Nominator
Whether exploring a global database that offers a harrowing portrait of the Transatlantic slave trade, the remarkable confluence of events that would support a student raised in the shadow of the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, or the science behind what makes a campus therapy dog so successful, we strive to deliver stories that stick with readers. Each of these digital projects were identified as topics that merited an immersive examination. They were created in Shorthand, in an innovative digital platform. "Documenting Slave Voyages" covers the re-launch of Emory's acclaimed Transatlantic Slave Trade Database, now one of the most widely utilized resources in the digital humanities.
