Biographies and Databases of Atlantic Slaves - Part 2: Episode 80 of Africa Past and Present is now available at: http://afripod.aodl.org

 In this episode, David Eltis, Robert W. Woodruff Professor of History at Emory University, reflects on the making of the Transatlantic Slave Trade database ( http://www.slavevoyages.org ), a landmark digital project he has co-edited for two decades. Eltis discusses the research process, online dissemination, and new directions and possibilities for this collaborative initiative. This is the second part of a two-part series recorded in November 2013 at the Atlantic Slave Biographies Database Conference held at Michigan State University.
