Dr. Chatelain will discuss the intersection between her academic research in African American life and history and her public scholarship. In this talk, Chatelain reflects on transforming her dissertation into the book South Side Girls: Growing up in the Great Migration, her appearance on the podcast, “Undisclosed: The Killing of Freddie Gray,” her creation of the digital humanities project #FergusonSyllabus, and her work on Georgetown University’s Working Group on Slavery, Memory and Reconciliation. In sharing her experiences on these projects, she reveals how her graduate training prepared her to make a difference inside and outside of academia.
