Alanna Prince
CERES Exhibit Toolkit Graduate Assistant

Alanna Prince is a PhD student in the English Department at Northeastern University. Her work centers around 20th and 21st century Black literature with a focus on gender and sexuality, decolonization, and visual culture. Prince’s introduction to the DSG was with the Early Caribbean Digital Archive, where she had previously acted as a Research and Metadata Lead and more recently as Project Manager. With the ECDA she takes a particular interest in metadata and meta-archival discourses as well as the potentials of remix and re-assemblage of material in the archive as a pedagogical tool. In her work with the Margret Fuller Archives and the Thoreau Archives, she intends to focus on pedagogy and public history, using archival documents to create exhibits, as well as classroom material, that forefront accessibility to all learners and equity to all voices.
