The program in the Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World (CLAW) at the College of Charleston was established in 1994 to promote scholarship and public engagement with the history and culture of the Lowcountry, the Atlantic World, and the connections between the two. CLAW's mission is to place Charleston and the surrounding Lowcountry region in a broader international context by fostering research and educational outreach that illuminates the ongoing connections and cultural exchange among various Atlantic cultures, societies, and ethnicities in Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, and the Americas.
The Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World (CLAW) program works with various partners that engage innovative digital tools and strategies to improve online access to history projects and educational outreach. The following Digital Initiatives are projects that take a multifaceted approach to advancing public access to scholarship, archives, oral histories, and spatial, temporal, and environmental information relevant to the Carolina Lowcountry and Atlantic World.
