overview

Amy E. Earhart is Associate Professor of English and affiliated faculty of Africana Studies at Texas A&M University. A 2020 Texas A&M University Presidential Impact Fellow and a 2019 Texas A&M University Arts & Humanities Fellow, Earhart has participated in grants and fellowship received from the NEH, ACLS, and the Mellon Foundation. In 2020, Earhart received a NEH-Mellon Fellowship for Digital Publication for her book length digital project "Digital Humanities and the Infrastructures of Race in African-American Literature." She has also won numerous teaching awards, including the University Distinguished Achievement Award from The Association of Former Students and Texas A&M University.



Involved with digital humanities scholarship since 2003, Earhart's scholarship has focused on examining infrastructures of technology and their impact and replication of "race," building infrastructure for digital humanities work, embedding digital humanities projects within the classroom, and tracing the history and futures of dh, with a particular interest in the way that dh and Black studies intersect. Her digital projects are constructed to expand access to Black humanities materials, as is the case with projects The Millican Massacre, 1868, DIBB: The Digital Black Bibliographic Project, and Alex Haley's Malcolm X: 'The Malcolm X I knew' and notecards from The Autobiography of Malcolm X (a collaborative project with undergraduate and graduate students published in Scholarly Editing).



Earhart has published scholarship on a variety of digital humanities topics, with work that includes a monograph Traces of Old, Uses of the New: The Emergence of Digital Literary Studies (U Michigan Press 2015), a co-edited collection The American Literature Scholar in the Digital Age (U Michigan Press 2010), and a number of articles and book chapters in volumes including the Debates in Digital Humanities series, DHQ, DSH: Digital Scholarship in the Humanities, Digital Studies/Le champ numerique, and Textual Cultures.



Her current book, "A Compromised Infrastructure: Digital Humanities, African American Literary History and Technologies of Identity," is under advance contract with Stanford University Press. She is also developing a digital project, Infrastructures of Race, and editing the Civil War Writings for the Collected Works of Harriet Beecher Stowe, Oxford UP.
