MITH Digital Dialogue: Carla Peterson and Seth Denbo, "From Print to Digital: The Black Gotham Digital Archive"

Description:
Tuesday, May 1st, 12:30-1:45PM, McKeldin Library Special Events Room (6137 McKeldin) From Print to Digital: The Black Gotham Digital Archive by CARLA PETERSON and SETH DENBO Carla says: "Ive spent my MITH fellowship year working on 'The Black Gotham Digital Archive.' My goal is to link an interactive web site, smart phones, and the geographic spaces of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn to create a deeper understanding of nineteenth-century black New York. The project is an extension of my book, 'Black Gotham: A Family History of Afri'can Americans in Nineteenth-Century New York City (Yale UP, 2011), and is motivated by my search for new media forms that will allow greater flexibility, interactivity, and potential for reaching a broader audience." Digital Dialogues is MITHs signature events program, an occasion for discussion, presentation, and intellectual exchange held almost every week while the academic semester is in session.
