Virtual Library Presentation
Elizabeth Corwin, Her Book: Uncovering Women’s Accounts from 17th-Century Salem.
With Caylin Carbonell, Hench Post-Dissertation Fellow at the American Antiquarian Society.
Caylin Carbonell is the Phillips Library's 2020 Frances E. Malamy Research Fellow. Over the summer, she conducted research to turn her dissertation Fraught Labor, Fragile Authority: Households in Motion in Early New England, into a monograph. Her dissertation challenges the typical image of the colonial economy, one ruled by propertied white men whose authority over their households was the guiding force of economic production. By demonstrating the diverse membership of colonial-era households — and the extent to which members imagined as ‘dependents’ in fact exercised a good deal of power within them — Carbonell centers the Native, African and Anglo-American people who labored across early New England households and shaped the economy through both their engagement with and resistance to household strategies.
In this virtual presentation, Carbonell will discuss how a “mystery” while researching at another institution led her to the collections at the Phillips Library, and how her time at the library helped her “solve” the mystery. This event is hosted by Jennifer Hornsby, Reference and Access Services Librarian at the Phillips Library.
