Our Board of Experts consists of 22 scholars with expertise in diverse fields: silent cinema, film pedagogy, Southern identity, software design, Civil War and Reconstruction era history, racial representation, construction of "whiteness," melodrama, narrative, film technology, and regionalism in literature. We will draw on our Board of Experts for interview segments to be included within guided analyses of Birth of a Nation clips, as well as for general feedback on content and design.
