Abstract

The Tracing Race at Iowa State University Initiative is a new effort to encourage, support, and facilitate digital scholarship projects that center the history and experiences of people of color within the Iowa State community. Through this initiative, the University Library and an interdisciplinary advisory committee seek to reveal the under-documented history of accomplishments and experiences of people of color and engage with the history of race, inequality, racism and student, faculty and staff activism on and off campus. This session will introduce the initiative and provide guidance for how students, faculty, and staff interested in participating can translate a project idea or research question into a digital project proposal.
