Transcription and Translation of New Orleans Francophone Newspapers
This summer, I’ll be reviewing French and English language newspapers from the Civil War and Reconstruction periods. These publications include L’Union (1862-1864) and the Tribune (founded in 1864). My work will involve identifying, transcribing, and translating articles of interest on the topics of slavery and freedom, race and government, law and equal protection, philosophy, and the politics or destiny of African Americans.
