Middle Passages: Gendered Diasporas (Visit Site)

Created in the seminar “Black Diasporas, Feminisms, and Sexual Politics” during the Spring 2009 semester, this educational and interactive, multimedia site is dedicated to decolonizing our worldviews as we map black women’s lives and narrate transnational and transhistorical stories of how they cross borders, exchange cultures, and forge diasporic identities. Using diverse media, including Google Maps, video, audio, images, and text, history is linked to the present day by focusing on “gendering” the history of the Middle Passage, highlighting women’s stories, and connecting this past with contemporary examples of migration, trafficking, and cultural flows.
