American Contact: lntercultural Encounter and the History of the Book

Rhae Lynn Barnes (History)

In a collaboration with colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins, this Princeton conference in Spring 2020 will explore the use of material texts in cross-cultural encounters in the Americas, creating a published volume and web resources for K-12 and university classrooms. This project will create 30 single-object case studies and multimedia representations, with a digital humanities component developed in part through a Fall 2019 Cultural History graduate seminar. Supported by a Humanities Council David A. Gardner ’69 Magic Grant
