Brief Description of the event:
A conversation bringing together experts in the fields of transcription and translation, this colloquium will explore the insights, challenges, excitements, and rewards in these fields.  Tom Weterings, from the University of Amsterdam, will speak about his experience in transcribing and editing the Juan Rodriguez original Dutch documents.  An important but largely unknown historical figure, Juan Rodriguez, a black or mulatto from Santo Domingo, is the first non-native person to have settled in the Hudson Bay area, even before the founding of New Amsterdam in what is today New York City.
