Jesuit Books and Libraries in Europe, 1540s-1770s
The European Jesuit Libraries Provenance Project
Team Spring 2021
Baoxin Lau is a student in the BA history program with an interest in the early modern and premodern periods. In addition to interest, her opportunity to use and practice Spanish drew her to this project. She dramatically expanded our knowledge base about women printers (go to the top menu "The Printers," and you'll find pull-down menus with some content. Baoxin's work is in the Spanish and Non-European sections). During Baoxin's semester, despite COVID and all the stress that came along with it, we made excellent progress and gained some insight into the basic work of women printers. We thank the Department of History for funding Baoxin's work.
