Spanish Majors Highlighted in Journal of Interactive Technology & Pedagogy

January 8, 2019

Please join us in congratulating students from SPAN 4500, whose work with colonial archives is featured in the latest issue of the Journal of Interactive Technology & Pedagogy!

Students in professor Allison Bigelow's course on "Colonial Translations" (Interpretando América Latina colonial) transcribed, translated, and annotated portions of rare books and manuscripts from the University of Virginia's Special Collections Library for publication on the Early Americas Digital Archive.

As Bigelow argues in the article, students in SPAN 4500 learned about colonial archives "by approaching them as public-facing, meaning-making sites of translation, interpretation, and textual editing, and by remediating print materials from the archives into annotated translations."
