Inaugural volume of LAIC “Editions”


Explore the work of LAIC's undergraduates to document the Spanish-language treasures of Columbia's Rare Book and Manuscript Library in the first volume of "Editions."

The Editions section of the research area on LAIC’s website is now live!

“Volume 1″ showcases the work of the undergraduates enrolled in A Disruptive Technology: Impacts of Printing in Early Modern Hispanic Worlds” (SPAN W3420) in the spring semester of 2015. Each student selected a sixteenth- or seventeenth-century printed book from Columbia University’s Rare Book & Manuscript Library (RBML) to photograph, describe, research, and briefly analyze.

You can read more about this project and its pedagogical rationale in the introduction to Volume 1, Columbia’s Early Modern Archives: Undergraduate Exhibit of Printed Books in the RBML. I encourage you to peruse Editions and discover the work of our accomplished undergraduates:
