Digital Humanities Launch Event Featuring Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish, Dr. Chad Leahy

Please join us in Room 204 of Falvey Memorial Library on Wednesday, April 2 at 4:00 p.m. as we celebrate the launch of a digital humanities project! 

Working with Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish Chad Leahy, PhD; the support of the Aurelius Digital Humanities Initiative; and the Villanova Institute for Teaching and Learning, students in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures have collaborated to produce a scholarly digital edition of El Perú en sus tradiciones, en su historia, en sus artes, a unique early 20th-century Peruvian manuscript held at Special Collections in the Falvey Memorial Library at Villanova. 

A visually rich scrapbook of Peruvian history and culture, the anonymous and undated manuscript incorporates numerous photographs, post cards and detailed illustrations as it traces a Peruvian national narrative stretching from pre-Columbian times to the early 20th century.

Dr. Leahy’s talk is titled “El Perú en sus tradiciones, en su historia, en sus artes: A Digital Edition.”

The event, sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, is free and open to the public.
