Abstract

Digital Projects Showcase Exhibitor Award

Editing the Eartha M. M. White Collection is a collaborative electronic editing project that first began creating, editing, and publishing transcriptions of documents from the Eartha M. M. White Collection in 2016. Since Spring 2020, Carol Lynne Hemmingway has headed the project as its student leader. The project has since been presented by Hemmingway as part of the course material for Dr. Clayton McCarl’s DIG3152 Intro to Electronic Textual Editing course that summer and for the virtual 2020 National Humanities Conference with Dr. McCarl, Dr. Felicia Bevel, and Susan Swiatosz, who all play key roles supporting the project. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the project’s activity in Spring 2021 focused on remote work. The effort to hold a series of remote workshops with students from Jacksonville’s Ed White High School became unviable after a series of technical problems. However, technology gave the project flexibility, as two virtual workshops for previous project participants and a one-day Transcribe-a-thon event open to the public could be held on short notice to compensate. Continuing the work of developing the project’s website, Hemmingway is writing another exhibit, titled “‘Not For Ourselves, But For Others’: African American Women Organizing and Leading in Jacksonville, Florida, and the United States.” This exhibit seeks to highlight the importance of black women in public, in their communities, and in the collection. Editing the Eartha White Collection’s continued work will require the training of a new student leader to plan and implement future workshops.
