Dael Norwood, UDARI Faculty Fellow Project Update

Posted on July 22, 2021 at: 10:21 am

This year’s Callahan fellows research was sponsored by the History Department, in partnership with the UD Anti-Racism Initiative, and was funded by the Ray Callahan Experiential Learning Fund.  Fellows were charged with investigating the history and legacy of racial inequality at the University of Delaware and its predecessor institutions.  They presented draft versions of their work at the inaugural workshop of the Legacies of Enslavement and Dispossession at UD subcommittee on June 21, 2021.  The blog posts are a further public presentation of this work – and part of an ongoing series of examinations of UD’s history.
