This project would not have been possible without the generosity and support of many others. First and foremost, I have to thank Julia Flanders, Syd Bauman, Ashley Clark, Elizabeth Dillon, and all of my colleagues at the Women Writers Project and the Early Caribbean Digital Archive for helping me to frame my research questions and commenting on the project’s encoding. I am also indebted to the entire NULab Practicum group for providing feedback as I have developed this project and to my dissertation committee, Professors Marina Leslie, Kathleen Kelly, and Patrick Mullen, for their invaluable assistance in shaping my research.
I would like to thank the TAPAS team for their hard work in making it possible for projects of this scope to share and publish their TEI texts. And finally, this project would not have been possible without the generosity of the Text Creation Partnership in making the TEI files for so many early modern texts publicly available. Many thanks!
