Corinth Jackson (BC ‘20) is a rising senior at Barnard College majoring in Urban Studies with a Specialization in Architecture. This summer, Corinth is working with the Archives & Special Collections Department and Digital Humanities Center (DHC) to research Black student life at Barnard. Corinth has several goals for the project, but at the moment, she is attempting to collect all of the names of Black students on campus. She hopes to make information about Black Barnard students more accessible. Through the collection of archival information about students on campus gathered digitally and physically, she intends to use different mediums to display the information. Corinth hopes that this project will shed light on what being Black at Barnard means and hopes that each medium can serve as a resource for the Barnard community.
Corinth’s research is supported by a Barnard Inclusion Grant written by Barnard Archives and DHC staff. Her fellow fellows are Katherynn Sandoval ’21, Kimberly Springer, Pam Phillips, and Celia Naylor.
