Presented by the Sheridan Libraries and Hopkins Alumni
Freshman Fellows is a signature academic opportunity offered by the Sheridan Libraries to introduce students to primary source research. Established in 2016, the program exposes students to primary source collections early in their college career by pairing four Fellows with four curators on individual research projects.
This session will be presented by DJ Quezada from Bentonville, Arkansas. DJ is a first-year student majoring in international studies and economics, with a focus on Latin America.
For this presentation, DJ will be discussing the differing accounts of activities of the British South Seas’ Company, comparing their public disclosures to their actual dealings (especially in the North Atlantic slave trade) through the usage of maps and other documents from the Special Collections.
