Aurelius logo with party hatWe’ve got our party hats on! Last semester, we assisted with two undergrad DH courses and we’re excited to show the finished products this spring!

We’ll have more detailed information as the launch parties get closer, but for now, here’s a preview:

On Tuesday, March 11, at 11:30am, Dr. Craig Bailey will unveil his History class’s historical profile of Ardmore. In this class, students looked at the 1920 census and compiled some of their research into a website, which will feature an interactive historical map of Ardmore and profiles of some notable community members.

On Wednesday, April 2, at 4:00pm, Dr. Chad Leahy will show his Spanish class’s digital scholarly edition of a Special Collections manuscript on the history of Peru. In this class, students learned about the process of creating scholarly editions of texts and were able to put that knowledge to use in transcribing and annotating a Spanish-language Peruvian manuscript.

Both of these events will take place in Room 204 in the Library’s second-floor Learning Commons. If you have any questions about either event, please get in touch at digitalhumanities@villanova.edu.
