A Quick Update
I will be posting more info, and a guest post or two, shortly, but I wanted to check in with a quick update. I've just returned from the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference Annual meeting, where I presented some preliminary research on the women printers in the database. This was made possible in part by undergraduate research (by Rachel Oliver and Baoxin Lin, whose bios are on the About Us page) funded by the Office of the Provost and the Department of History at Georgia Southern University. I had hoped to provide some snazzy data visualizations, but alas, I haven't been able to do that. Still, I have managed to get some information about a large number of women print workers, and you can see that I've created a few subpages with brief biographical sketches, or whatever details I could find, for different cities in Spain. More is coming, but I'm not sure when. It will depend on when I can next hire a student worker.
In the meantime, I'm working to integrate a huge amount of data provided for the EJLPP by our friends and partners in Barcelona. My current student is helping me understand the distribution of texts by language and subject in Spanish and French colleges. And I've got a few other related projects going on as well. I will update you all as soon as I can!
