Team AY 2019-2020
Lauren Della Piazza Hartke completed her MA in Public History at Georgia Southern University in May, 2020. Her interests in Medieval and Early Modern religion and spirituality, as well as European public history, are what drew her to this project. She used her experience in Latin and her interest in early modern English history to continue the Digital Commons and social media sides of the project. For some of her findings, see the "Data" page (accessed via the top menu) in the coming weeks. Lauren's work was the most detailed use of Digital Humanities skills to date, and has provided us with new insights into the database. Thanks for all you've done, and best of luck to you in your future pursuits.
Rachel Oliver was our first paid intern (many thanks to the Office of Research Services and Sponsored Programs at Georgia Southern for approving her position!). She is a history major with plans to go to law school at the University of Georgia. She is on the fencing team at Georgia Southern. Her work (Spring semester through early summer 2020) was part of our first exploration into the printers in the database: she assisted in building a biographical database of women printers. We regret that the University's Research Symposium in April 2020 was cancelled due to COVID-19 and has not been rescheduled. You will still be able to learn about these women printers: check the Printers tab above for our current progress. It will be updated periodically. Thanks, Rachel, and ORSSP, for the opportunity we had, which is making the work of women printers better known! Good luck in the future.
