Reason and Romanticism: Reimagined and Re-Imaged

Reason and Romanticism: Reimagined and Re-Imaged

Students will conduct research on a body of letters written by prominent, though not widely celebrated, 18th century women writers. They will write and edit articles for Wikipedia pertaining to the selected writers and themes represented in their writings. Building on their research, students will develop a digital map or network visualization depicting the relationships represented in their correspondence. Students will contribute to this project over multiple semesters, thereby collaborating over time to create an open resource that gives voice to these marginalized female writers.
