Centre for Research in Race and Rights (C3R)

The centre is home to world-leading digital humanities projects based on members' research. These digital projects aim to make academic research more accessible to a wider audience while also offering scholars the opportunity to present their research in a more interactive and visual format.

We also host speakers on digital humanities topics and collaborate with external partners on digital projects, for example a new project mapping the UK’s black activist groups who form the Movement for Black Lives / #BlackLivesMatterUK. We launch the world’s first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on contemporary slavery on October 17, 2016. 


Advancing digital humanities


Digital projects

Sustainable Activism
This digital companion shows the history of Loisaida (Lower East Side) community activism through the lens of its neighborhood organisations and groups. This project is based on Timo's PhD thesis and will be part of an exhibit at the Loisaida Centre in New York City. Timo is the recipient of the Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship for Research Excellence.
Douglass in UK
This project shows Frederick Douglass' travels in Britain in 1845. It includes teaching resources, a map of Douglass' speeches, and other information on this famous abolitionist and advocate for social justice. The project is part of Hannah-Rose's AHRC-funded PhD thesis and started as project during her Master's at Royal Holloway in London.
An AHRC-funded exhibition of Frederick Douglass murals and street art, this brought together a selection of the world’s 110 Douglass murals for the first time. Though inventive and initially cherished, these murals are ephemeral and sometimes neglected or destroyed. In some cases, photographic documentation is our only record of their existence.
