Ecclesiastical Sources and Historical Research on the African Diaspora in Brazil and Cuba

The creation of a digitized catalogue of Brazilian and Cuban ecclesiastical records, offering information on the history of Africans and people of African descent in the Americas, from the sixteenth century through the end of the nineteenth century. (36 months)

This project unites scholars from Brazil, the United States, and Canada in a three-year collaboration to digitize ecclesiastical records for African history in Brazil, Cuba, and the Spanish circum-Caribbean. The results will be the preservation of endangered and unique records for the history of Africans in the Americas through a digitized archive, web page, and CD-ROMs. In addition, over the life of the three-year project, international scholars and students will collaborate in workshops to exchange research and learn new technologies. Technical support and expertise, as well as data storage and management, will be provided by the Harriet Tubman Resource Centre on the African Diaspora at York University.
