Emblematica Online: A Virtual Window into the European Renaissance

The Emblem was a bimedial text-image genre that permeated all aspects of Renaissance culture and provides an excellent window into the mentalities and attitudes of the European Renaissance. Over the past decade Professor Wade has been the PI for the international research project that developed the web resources for emblem studies, Emblematica Online. This presentation offers an overview of the project and presents its scope: digitized books, emblems indexed, project partners. Professor Wade will demonstrate how to browse and search in the portal to locate materials for your research and pedagogy.
