Lecture

Making Colonial American Publishing Visible

Thursday, April 30, 2015
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Nightingale-Brown House

Jim Egan and Patrick Rashleigh will speak about their work visualizing the library catalog databases that serve as the foundation for Mapping Colonial Americas Publishing Project (http://cds.library.brown.edu/mapping-genres/). They are currently using various visualization tools on the database in an effort to tell a story about colonial American almanacs, and, as they craft this story together, they are trying to understand the collaborative processes essential to any digital humanities project.
