Scott Nesbit, Affiliated Faculty

Scott Nesbit is assistant professor of digital humanities at the University of Georgia’s College of Environment and Design. His work explores the intersection between digital tools and humanistic questions, particularly questions touching on the history and spaces of the American South. He has led digital history projects such as Visualizing Emancipation, which used a wide array of textual sources -- ranging from military correspondence to runaway slave advertisements found in southern newspapers -- to map out where and when slavery fell apart during the American Civil War.
