PBS’ History Detectives to visit ASU

More from pressroom

PHOENIX (March 21, 2013)  Dr. Eduardo Pagán, a Bob Stump Endowed Professor of History at ASU, Arizona native and star of popular PBS series History Detectives joins his co-hosts for a special live event on Thursday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Arizona State University West campus (4701 W. Thunderbird Rd, Glendale, AZ 85306), in the La Sala Ballroom. The hosts will show clips from their investigations, tell behind-the-scenes stories about the program's most popular mysteries and take questions from the audience.

The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required – to register, visit azpbs.org/hdlive. Seating is limited. Free parking will be available.

History Detectives on PBS explores the complexities of historical mysteries – searching out the facts, myths and conundrums that connect local folklore, family legends and interesting objects. Pagán’s co-hosts include Wesley Cowan, independent appraiser and auctioneer; Gwendolyn Wright, historian and professor of architecture, Columbia University; Elyse Luray, independent appraiser and expert in art history; and Tukufu Zuberi, professor of sociology and director of the Center for Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. These experts use investigative techniques and modern technologies to provide new – and sometimes shocking – insights into our national history.

A new bonus episode of the show will air April 2 at 7 p.m. on Eight, Arizona PBS.
