2020-2021 FLDH Webinar Series: ColoniaLab: Digital Editing with Students at UNF
coloniaLab is a workshop for the collaborative digital editing of materials related to early Latin America, directed by Dr. Clayton McCarl at the University of North Florida. This webinar will feature Dr. McCarl and four of coloniaLab’s student collaborators, who will discuss projects related to colonial-era Florida and nineteenth-century Colombia. Emilia Thom will share her edition of a series of dispatches from St. Augustine to Madrid regarding relations between the Spanish colonists and Indigenous groups. Georgina Wilson will present her work with a map and several archival documents related Fort St. Nicholas, a Spanish fortification that was located on the St. John’s river in present-day Jacksonville. Alexandra Zapata will explain her work on a slave census conducted in the Antioquia region of Colombia in the 1840s. Carol Lynne Hemmingway will discuss her edition of a manuscript by Colombian author Soledad Acosta de Samper. The students will reflect on what they have learned through these projects, and how their involvement may shape their future academic and professional plans.
