The ECDA Google Maps Engine project is comprised of the work by two undergraduate scholars (Lindi Nguyen and Gabriel Feldstein) at Northeastern University. As an alternative course project for Professor Nicole Aljoe's Slave Narrative course (Spring 2014), and working with two of the co-Directors of the ECDA (Elizabeth Hopwood and Benjamin J. Doyle), Nguyen and Feldstein worked collaboratively over the term on building two seperate yet complimentary mapping projects for Aljoe's scholarly exhibit on Early Caribbean Slave Narratives. Nguyen's project offers an alternative mapping of the Early Caribbean Slave Narrative exhibit by plotting the geographic positions and movements of the persons who either composed or related the slave narratives that make up the primary sources of the exhibit. Where Nguyen's map guides visitors to the ECDA through the Caribbean Slave Narrative exhibit on a macro level, Feldstein offers a micro-mapping of the geographic positions and movements of Mary Prince as related in The History of Mary Prince.

We invite you to also visit another student-scholar project by Gregory Lum, a colleague of Nguyen and Feldstein's, who composed a scholarly introduction and analysis of Louis Asa-Asa's narrative in context with Mary Prince and her narrative. Please visit Lum's work here.
