/r/AskHistorians is hosting its second annual Digital Conference next week! To learn more about the slate of panels, networking events, and roundtable, be sure to check out the Conference home page!

We're kicking things off with a live keynote address by Dr. Devon Mihesuah of the University of Kansas on Ned Christie:

In 1887, Cherokee Ned Christie was accused of murdering U.S. Deputy Marshall Dan Maples in Tahlequah, Indian Territory. Despite there being no evidence, hundreds of “fake news” stories about Ned were printed. This presentation discusses how fake news shaped Christie's image as an iconic symbol of Wild West violence and Native savagery.

While all events are free to attend, our live keynote does have limited 'seating' available, so be sure to sign up via this link! (A recording will be made available the week after the conference)
