Her new book project is Early Modern Intellectual Networks: Emblems as Open Sources. In digital terms, the “open source” model generates collaborative communities based on the modification, extension, and wide distribution of a source code along diverse paths of communication. These aspects of “open source” also describe the dynamics of the early modern emblem, a combination of texts and pictures that were continuously modified, repurposed, and reassembled to produce new meaning for new audiences. In Early Modern Intellectual Networks: Emblems as Open Sources, I advance an entirely new argument about the role of emblems in both producing and connecting networks of learning and friendship.
The Politics of Culture: Public Humanities in the Free Imperial City, Nürnberg 1521-1620 builds on a discovery made at the Newberry Library 2016-2017 as an Andrew J. Mellon and NEH fellow. The Kress Foundation has awarded a grant for a conference organized together with Dr. Lia Markey, Director, Center for Renaissance Studies, Newberry Library. A conference volume and graduate student research will also be supported with this grant.
