About Me


I am the Digital Humanities Curator at The American Antiquarian Society (AAS). My own research examines debates around literary property and race in the eighteenth-century transatlantic world. Through the TAPAS project, I am publishing a digital edition of A Narrative of the Proceedings of the Black People, During the Late Awful Calamity in Philadelphia (1794); this pamphlet was the first time that African Americans secured a copyright in the United States.
