Welcome to the Shade Research Collective

Thanks to generous funding from the New England Humanities Consortium we have gathered scholars and culture workers from the region to think across disciplines to explore the global dimensions of the Connecticut River Valley’s tobacco plantations and urban connections. By bridging the rural and urban development of this region we aim to recover lost histories of workers and migrants, create new narratives of the labor and community, and envision a sustainable and equitable vision of the future for this place.
