Amarilys Sánchez

In the summer of 2019, Amarilys Sánchez (History/Spanish) participated in SPN3860 Digital Textual Editing in Spanish, as part of the study abroad program co-led by Dr. Clayton McCarl and Dr. Constanza López in Colombia. In this course, she participated in the transcription and editing of a legal case involving slavery and alleged witchcraft from 1713 that forms part of the Antioquia Negra Digital Archive. The following fall, Amarilys prepared an experimental edition of the initial folios of a census of slaves and free individuals of African descent from the 1840s, also part of the Antioquia Negra Digital Archive, as her semester project in SPW3471 Studies in Colonial and Nineteenth-Century Latin American Literature. She presented on this work at the 2019 UNF International Research Symposium, and will present with Dr. McCarl and classmate Emilia Thom at the annual congress of the Latin American Studies Association in Guadalajara, Mexico, in May 2020. Amarilys is pictured here in 2019.
