The Emma B. Andrews Diary Project
The diaries of Mrs. Emma Buttles Andrews (1837-1922) are an important resource for the history of archaeology in Egypt at the turn-of-the-century. Mrs. Andrews traveled with Theodore M. Davis between 1889 and 1913 and during this time witnessed the excavation of a number of significant tombs. The couple purchased an extensive collection of antiquities, many of which are now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Their boat, the dahabeah ‘Bedouin’ was a hub of social activity, and their guest list could be described as a ‘Who’s Who’ of society during this period.
- University of Washington undergraduate internship in digital humanities, including project management, text encoding (XML/TEI), digital editions, historical research, and social media. Established in 2012, the program has partnered with the Svoboda Diaries Project in offering opportunities to over 200 students from 40 departments across campus.
- Student research is been presented annually at the UW’s Undergraduate Research Symposium.
- Umbrella project to house collected research outputs for the EBA Diary Project, Helen Winlock, Nile Travelogues database, Thomas Cook Passenger Lists database, TEI Publisher digital edition
- Initial release of the Nile Travelogues database comprises a listing of 400 published travelogues, searchable by title, author and decade. Many are viewable via our embedded IIIF viewer which displays open access publications from the Internet Archive (example).
