Courtney Murray is a Dual-Title PhD student in the Departments of English and African American Studies and a Scholar with the Center for Black Digital Research (CBDR) at The Pennsylvania State University. Her research focuses on interrogating the manifestations of Black archival practices and theory in late 18th-early 19th c. African Diasporic archives and literature. As a center scholar, she has bridged her love for archives and Black communities through her roles on the CBDR Douglass Day and Cooper-Du Bois Mentoring Program committees. Her roles at CBDR have ranged from serving as a member of the Zooniverse crowdsourcing development team, a managing editor of the Douglass Day newsletter, and more recently, a researcher on the Colored Conventions Project Digital Archives Committee. For the Cooper-Du Bois Mentoring Program, she helped organize programming to support and recruit prospective underrepresented students interested in doctoral study in African American Literature, Language, and Culture.
