Mary Borgo – Fall 2016


Thank you so very much for supporting my trip to Phoenix! Presenting at the North American Victorian Studies conference was a game-changer for me. The lively Q&A generated by my paper on twenty-first-century cartographic tools and nineteenth-century projection equipment has helped me to create better digital resources for studying early screen culture. Thanks to the conference, I am better prepared to address the limitations of current software, especially how these digital mapping tools represent colonial spaces. Ultimately, attending NAVSA  generated new opportunities for collaborative projects, publication, and funding, and I am excited to share my dissertation research through these new venues.
