    “History, Race, and Digital Humanities” with ASU Professor Matt Delmont

    Join Arizona State History professor Matt Delmont for a demo and discussion of Scalar, a multimedia web-authoring platform. Professor Delmont will talk about using Scalar to create companion websites for his book projects on American Bandstand, busing for school desegregation, and Roots, as well as his current digital history project, Black Quotidian: Everyday History in African-American Newspapers.
