Come to 5th Annual Early Modern Recipe Collective Transcribathon!

Feminist scholarship. Seventeenth-century recipe books. And scores of transcribers from around the world. No experience necessary.

  • UNCOVER the hidden stories of women from the Renaissance
  • LEARN how to read 17th c. manuscripts
  • DISCOVER the recipes for making everything from medicine to dessert wine
  • WONDER at another era's cooking, health care, shopping, and gardening habits.
  • CREATE a searchable, digital text for scholars and students to use

Using the Folger Shakespeare Library's online transcription platform, we will produce a searchable transcription of two manuscript books in a single day. Drop by and see what this is all about. Elizabethan collars optional!
