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.
Africa Past and Present is hosted by Peter Alegi and Peter Limb and co-produced by Matrix -- the Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences -- and the Department of History at Michigan State University. Subscribe to the podcast on our website and on iTunes.
