Virginia Commonwealth University English Professor Joshua Eckhardt and interns Sarah Black, Paul Brennan, Kayleigh Dumont, and Olivia Hudson will discuss British Virginia, a digital humanities project that reproduces editions of original documents about the Virginia Colony, primarily from the Virginia Company of London, so that they are widely accessible and freely downloadable. The panelists will explain the project, the challenges it poses, and the benefits it brings to researchers and students across the world. This program will feature an opportunity to see the original documents from the VMHC’s collections, from which these freely accessible versions derive.
