Rebecca Laroche: January 12 & 13

An invitation from Holly Dugan:

Dear MEMSI members,

I write to invite you to an informal lunch and coffee with Rebecca Laroche next Monday, January 12th and to hear her presentation on transcribing and coding archival recipes as part of the Early Modern Recipes Online Collective on Tuesday, January 13th at 4:15 (in my and Leah Chang's graduate course on early modern women writers in Rome 771).

Rebecca Laroche is Associate Professor of English at the University of Corado-Colorado Springs and the author of Medical Authority and Englishwomen's Herbal Texts, 1550- 1650 (Ashgate, 2008). She's also a founding member Early Modern Recipes Online (, which is part of the recipes project ( She's a tremendous (and inspiring) resource about women writers, archival research, and digital humanities, particularly on the role of gender in digital projects that deal with the past. I know that the start of the semester is a very busy time of year, but it should be a fascinating series of conversations. I hope you can join us.
Her visit to our campus is generously funded by GWU's Digital Humanities Institute and Medieval and Early Modern Studies Institute. 

Please email me ( if you'd like to attend lunch, coffee, or her presentation next week.

all best,
Holly Dugan
