The Villanova Community is cordially invited to join us on Monday, March 18 at 4:00 p.m. in room 205 of Falvey Memorial Library for a Digital Scholarship Talk featuring Sharon Leon, PhD on “Labor, Exchange, Manumission, and Sales: The Enslaved Community Owned and Sold by the Maryland Province Jesuits.”

In the Jesuit Plantation Project, Dr. Leon focuses on the lives and experiences of the enslaved community owned and sold in 1838 by the Maryland Province Jesuits. With an eye to the events and relationships that formed the warp and woof of the daily lives of this enslaved community, Dr. Leon has worked to identify more than 1,000 individual enslaved people present in the documentary evidence between roughly 1740 and 1840. The project employs linked open data and an array of techniques to visualize the entire community of enslaved people and their relationships to one another across space and time.

This event, sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
