The Program in the Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World

The Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World (CLAW) Program at the College of Charleston was established in 1994 to promote scholarship and public engagement with the history and culture of the Lowcountry region, the Atlantic World, and the connections between the two.

In collaboration with various local, national, and international partners, the CLAW program regularly hosts or co-sponsors a range of conferences, symposia, public lectures, faculty seminar sessions, film screenings, and other public programming in and around Charleston, South Carolina. In addition, through the University of South Carolina Press, the Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World Series features numerous books on diverse topics related to Atlantic World experiences. Faculty and affiliates of CLAW also frequently work with a range of cultural heritage organizations to support physical and digital exhibitions that promote robust educational outreach.

CLAW Partner Virtual Event

Building Justice From the Source

The Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor NHA invites you to attend a live, virtual event on Thursday, October 29, at 4PM EST. This virtual event will bring together a group of emerging, traditional artists from across the nation: Jake Blount, Sara Makeba Daise, Marquise Knox and Latanya D. Tigner. They are all deeply rooted in traditional culture and drawing on that powerful wellspring to offer important, contemporary social critiques of race, racial injustice and notions of self-identity. Their work encourages us to shape new narratives around contemporary, cultural identities rooted in traditional ways of knowing, living and making art — yet keenly responsive to our current moment.
