Emilia Thom

In the summer of 2019, Emilia Thom (Exercise Science/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, Emilia prepared an experimental edition of Chapters 28 and 29 of Book 12 of Bernardino de Sahagún’s Historia general (the Códice Florentino), as her semester project in SPW3471 Studies in Colonial and Nineteenth-Century Latin American Literature. She presented on this work at the 2019 Digital Projects Showcase, hosted by the UNF Digital Humanities Institute, as well as at the 2019 UNF International Research Symposium. Emilia will present with Dr. McCarl and classmate Amarilys Sánchez at the annual congress of the Latin American Studies Association in Guadalajara, Mexico, in May 2020. Emilia is pictured here in 2019.
