Summary

The Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery (DAACS) Research Consortium facilitates collaborative scholarship in the humanities and social sciences, especially in archaeology, across institutional and spatial boundaries. The primary products of the Mellon Grant were a web-based platform for the existing DAACS database, as well as a comprehensive training session wherein institutional partners and research assistants learned cataloging protocols in a collaborative in-house environment with DAACS staff. Session participants were then equipped to enter context and artifact data online for their own archaeological pilot studies, which will be published on the DAACS website, thereby allowing seamless comparison among published sites within the early-modern Atlantic World. This paper discusses this ongoing project in terms of the collaborative and iterative process of the training sessions and preparation of public content about the pilot studies for the website.
