Overview

The Dictionary of African Christian Biography (https://dacb.org/) is a collaborative project that documents the biographies of the African men and women who spread Christianity throughout Africa. The DACB’s mission is to displace eurocentric narratives and provide the building blocks for a more accurate history by emphasizing the role of local agents. The DACB prioritizes web design that ensures its content is widely accessible to local people in Africa. The student researcher will code and redesign parts of the website for better intuitive user-friendly access, re-design pages that will display and hold DACB resources, troubleshoot and perform site maintenance as needed, and develop useful tools. End results must conform to our Minimal Computing ethos.

Requisite skills: Functional knowledge of Github platform software including Jekyll, Ruby, Atom, Liquid as well as Node.js and Yarn. Possibility of ongoing position.
