English Professor Bryan Wagner Launches Louisiana Slave Conspiracies Project

English Professor and GUH Faculty Bryan Wagner launches the Louisiana Slave Conspiracies project dedicated to preserving, digitizing, transcribing, translating, and analyzing manuscripts related to two slave conspiracies organized at the Pointe Coupée Post in the Spanish territory of Louisiana in 1791 and 1795. Our website uses a custom facing-page display to present French and Spanish manuscripts alongside original transcriptions and English translations, permitting users to search, browse, and navigate among documents and interactive maps derived from a database tracking persons, places, and assertions. Bryan Wagner is a 2020 Global Urban Humanities Fellow and co-taught the 2019 GUH undergraduate studio course on New Orleans
