This project has two distinct elements. The first is an interactive map of the locations of Borges’s publisher, printers, booksellers, and places of employment from 1930 to 1951. The second part of the project is a descriptive bibliography of all of the books that Borges wrote, prologued, translated, or edited during the 1930s and 1940s. In light of the fact that there are virtually no extant publishers’ archives from the Argentine firms I have been studying for my research, I see this DH project as a way to give future scholars access to much of the raw data I created while researching for my first monograph and, hopefully, provide them with a resource to create projects of their own.
Global Networks of Cultural Production
This project seeks to explore the emergence of a transatlantic literary print culture in Argentina during the twentieth century, primarily through the efforts of Victoria Ocampo. Through an interactive map and network graphs, which are fueled by a relational database, this project reveals the intricate circuits of conversation, collaboration, and creation that blossomed in Argentina during this time in addition to providing an archive of metadata about the physical aspects of the letters, magazines, journals, and other ephemera that link all of the involved intellectuals.
