Africa Past and Present: Episode 60
In Episode 60 of Africa Past and Present, Historians Gwendolyn Midlo Hall and Walter Hawthorne discuss the Atlantic Slave Data Network — a digital history project of Matrix and the MSU History Department funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. They discuss the origins of the ASDN, intellectual and technological challenges, and the wider significance of building a freely accessible web database on the identities of enslaved people in the Atlantic World.
Africa Past and Present is hosted by Michigan State University historians Peter Alegi and Peter Limb and produced by MATRIX. Subscribe to the podcast on the Africa Past and Present website and on iTunes.
