    Biography

    Kevin earned his Ph.D. in American Studies at the University of Maryland. Currently, he is a 2019-2021 CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow. His scholarship includes published articles on social movements and religion. In "Black Catholicism and Black Lives Matter: the process towards joining a movement" (Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2017), Kevin uses an adaptation of social movement frame analysis to examine how Black Catholics define and construct the ongoing political issues within the Black Lives Matter movement. Kevin has a forthcoming manuscript entitled, Emancipatory Hope: Reclaiming Black Social Movement Continuity. In his previous work, Kevin served as Project Manager for the Andrew W. Mellon funded African American History, Culture, and Digital Humanities where he convened and facilitates project events and other scholarly activities making the digital humanities more inclusive of African American history and culture and enriching African American studies research with new methods, archives and tools.

    His work with CCP implements and supervises new, multi-institutional partnerships for gathering documents, organizing research data, and sharing metadata related to the nineteenth-century Colored Conventions. Working with the digital archives committee, Winstead coordinates CCP undergraduate and graduate student project work in data curation. He also organizes yearly workshops and panel discussions about data curation and its importance for Black communities for and in conjunction with local community archives and groups.
