Dr. Hillier’s talk is titled “The Ward: Race and Class in Du Bois’ 7th Ward.” The Ward is a 10-year-old teaching, public history, and outreach project based on Du Bois' 1899 book, The Philadelphia Negro. Using a combination of old and new technologies including GIS mapping, students and researchers strive to interpret the "problem of the color line" over three centuries as a cultural, educational, economic, residential, and health divide that has been studied, negotiated, challenged, and at times transcended. With the voices of scholars, policy makers, social entrepreneurs, and everyday history makers, contributors explore how racism has also been reshaped, reinvented and reinforced over three centuries. During this presentation, Dr. Hillier will also discuss how GIS and other digital tools have contributed to the humanities content of the project.

 

This event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library and the Department of Philosophy, is free and open to the public.
