Enabling Access to the Federal Writers’ Project Slave Narratives

A Case Study of Intersectionality in Digital Archive Design


  • Cate Alexander University of Alberta


This case study examines how to design an interactive online database for the FWP Slave Narratives that is rooted in the theoretical frameworks of intersectionality, critical race theory, and information ethics. The theoretical frameworks help us to know what we should do, while technical expertise allow us to think through what we can do in order to frame and mediate this information.
