Mark Rosen Lecture: The Medici Archive Project and the Early Modern Digital Humanities

One of the first (and still one of the leading) digital humanities databases for documents concerning the politics and culture of Early Modern Europe, the Medici Archive Project contains an exhaustive series of letters and court records from the Florentine state archives covering the years between 1537 and 1743. The project has provided source materials and transcriptions for hundreds of scholarly books and articles in the fields of Early Modern history, religion, literature, diplomacy, military history, art history, and material culture. This talk by former project fellow Mark Rosen (University of Texas at Dallas) introduces the recent re-conceptualization and relaunch of the site as a interactive platform called BIA (bia.medici.org) that allows new opportunities for collaboration and exchange with scholars around the world.

Mark Rosen is an assistant professor of aesthetic studies at the University of Texas at Dallas. A specialist in Early Modern cartography, he has published in journals including The Art Bulletin, the Mitteilungen des Kunsthistorischen Institutes in Florenz, Oud Holland, and Nuncius. He has received fellowships from the Kress Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Delmas Foundation.
