This proposal seeks funds to build a digital database of sources that will amplify my undergraduate teaching of African culture and history, in particular a freshman seminar that I plan to teach at least once a year for the next several years called "Imagining the Congo" and a new high enrollment lecture course to be called "Visual Histories of the Congo" I will undoubtedly use some of the same materials and techniques in my other undergraduate teaching, including the popular, "Health and Illness in African Worlds."
