Roberson Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation

The Roberson Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation at the University of the South is a six-year initiative investigating the university’s historical entanglements with slavery and slavery’s legacies. Our Project’s name memorializes the late Professor of History, Houston Bryan Roberson, who was the first tenured African American faculty member at Sewanee and the first to make African American history and culture the focus of their teaching and scholarship.

Science, Society and the Archives: A collaborative project of Sewanee, Davidson, Furman, and WLU

This collaborative “Science, Society and the Archives” project leverages the expertise of scholars across our respective campuses interested in studying science, medicine and technology as historically developing enterprises that are socially and culturally situated. We approach the endeavor with a genuine interest in interdisciplinary and innovative approaches to “Science and Society” curriculum development and undergraduate research.
