9:30 am - 4:30 pm CT
This workshop will explore the intersections of literary studies, digital humanities, and methods for sharing materials that are not born digital to a wide audience. To stage the conversation, we will use a 1648 publication by Thomas Gage, The English-American, housed in the Newberry’s collection, as a case study. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, The English-American is an incredible research and teaching tool that broadens conversations about the early Americas and Caribbean, transatlantic slavery, early modern religion, literature, and politics, material culture, foodways, cartography, geography, anthropology, and more.
