Archaeology of Reading wins RSA's Digital Innovation Award

The Renaissance Society of America’s new Digital Innovation Award recognises excellence in digital projects that support the study of the Renaissance. This year, the prize is split between The Archaeology of Reading in Early Modern Europe (AOR) and A Digital Anthology of Early Modern English Drama (EMED).

CELL, in partnership with the Johns Hopkins University’s Sheridan Libraries and the Princeton University Library, were awarded a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to implement The Archaeology of Reading in Early Modern Europe. This new digital humanities research initiative explores historical reading practices through the lens of manuscript annotations preserved in early printed books.

Congratulations to the whole project team for this well-earned award!
