Amy E. Earhart to edit Civil War Writings

The Collected Works of Harriet Beecher Stowe (CWHBS) has commissioned Amy E. Earhart to edit two Civil War Writings volumes, including “Sojourner Truth, the Libyan Sybil,” House and Home Papers, Chimney Corner, and journalism. Earhart is Associate Professor of English and affiliated faculty of Africana Studies at Texas A&M University. A specialist in nineteenth-century American literature with a special interest in digital humanities, her work has focused on building infrastructure for digital humanities projects, embedding digital humanities projects within the classroom, and tracing the history and futures of digital humanities.  Earhart has a particular interest in intersection of critical race studies, as is the case with her projects The Millican Massacre, 1868; DIBB: The Digital Black Bibliographic Project; and “Alex Haley’s Malcolm X: ‘The Malcolm X I knew’; and notecards from The Autobiography of Malcolm X” (a collaborative project with undergraduate and graduate students published in Scholarly Editing).  Earhart’s recent print publications include Traces of Old, Uses of the New: The Emergence of Digital Literary Studies (University of Michigan Press, 2015), a co-edited collection The American Literature Scholar in the Digital Age (University of Michigan Press, 2010), as well as a number of articles and book chapters. Her current project is a book length manuscript, “Can a Computer Be Racist?: Digital Humanities and the Infrastructures of Race in African-American Literature” and a related digital project, “Infrastructures of Race.”
