Deanna Shemek, “Digital Princess: Toward an Open-Access Online Archive of Renaissance Correspondence”
November 16, 2011 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Professor Shemek studies intersections of elite and popular culture in early modern Italy, especially among women. Her current research focuses on early modern letter writing. She is completing an edition of Isabella d’Este’s letters and a book on the broader significance of early modern women’s letters. The talk addresses plans to digitize the manuscript sources for her edition and visualize the social network of a Renaissance princess.
Deanna Shemek is Professor of Literature at UC Santa Cruz.
This colloquium is presented by the Center for Cultural Studies, with staff support provided by the Institute for Humanities Research.
