I am studying representations of race and gender in colonial newspapers in the Dutch, English, and Spanish empires in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Colonial newspapers in two centuries and three empires of course constitute an enormous amount of material. As such, digital methods play an important role in my research.
