Interesting new archives digitization project in Argentina

July 12, 2012 · Leave a Comment

Via the SALALM listserv, I just got word of this interesting project going on in Buenos Aires, the digitization of Editorial Haynes. The publishing house was one of the most important in 20th-century Argentina, and launched the careers of many writers and editors, and also published several popular magazines that reflected daily Argentine life during this time.

Information about the project is here. There is surprisingly little readily available information about the press itself, and so sometimes this is where Wikipedia can be pretty handy, at least as a starting point. Its entry is here. I have a feeling some interesting work can come out of this!
