From H-NET Discussion List for African American Studies [forwarded by Isabel Espinal]:

For upcoming ASALH conference, I am seeking to form a panel on African
American Studies and Digital Technologies. I am looking for scholars
and/or practitioners whose scholarship and practice focuses upon the
innovative use of computing technologies for research and teaching in
African American Studies. Scholars who focus on the sociel, political
and economic implications of the computing revolution on African
American studies are also welcome. I look forward to hearing from you.
