Project 1: Translation Corpus of Don Quixote.
This dh project is a collation which includes metadata of the different renderings published of El Quijote into a second language, from the first known translation, the English translation (1612-1620), to subsequent translations, e.g.: French (1614, 1618), Italian (1622), German (1648), Dutch (1657), among others. This corpus is composed mainly of the physical items of Don Quixote in translation owned by Texas A&M University, which are held at The Cushing Memorial Library & Archives as part of The Eduardo Urbina Cervantes Collection. Future inquiry of this corpus will include open-access digital materials found at other libraries worldwide.

Project 2: A Digital gallery of Quixotes.
For this project, I will gather images & illustrations of El Quijote in a digital gallery by narrating the novel chronologically. The data will be taken from Texas A&M University's Cervantes Project: http://cervantes.dh.tamu.edu, and from the rare books' material of the Texas A&M Eduardo Urbina Cervantes Collection, host at the Cushing Memorial Library: https://archiveexhibits.library.tamu.edu/cervantes/QuixoteCat.pdf.
