Baylor Connections - Stephen Reid

Jan 31, 2020

Longtime Biblical scholar Stephen Reid’s research is an example of the ways modern technology can give voice to individuals whose voices might otherwise go unheard. Dr. Reid, Professor of Christian Scriptures in Baylor’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary, recently utilized text mining to learn how African-Americans in the 1700s and 1800s interpreted the book of Deuteronomy. Through a partnership with Baylor University’s College of Arts & Sciences and University Libraries, Baylor Digital Scholarship offers powerful technologies to enhance research in the digital humanities. Learn more about how Reid’s experience accelerated his research and provided deep insight into the ways African-Americans shared the Bible on the path to emancipation.
