Earthseed is an Afrofuturist digital humanities research project at the intersection of Black Media Studies, Digital Media, and Science Fiction Studies, inspired by the philosophy of prescient science fiction legend Octavia E. Butler. We define Afrofuturism as an epistemology and cultural movement that melds art, science, and technology to imagine and create what acclaimed science fiction writer Samuel R. Delany calls Black livability. The study of Black livability is crucial in an era where COVID-19 and other issues of systemic injustice continue to ravage Black communities. Earthseed is a digital space that will house and support faculty, undergraduate, and graduate student research in Afrofuturism and host digital archives devoted to Afrofuturism.
