WESS-SEES De Gruyter European Librarianship Study Grant
Marta Mestrovic Deyrup
“This project exemplifies the commitment of WESS-SEES librarians to identify and preserve cultural heritage materials published by and about ethnic groups living within or dispersed among larger communities,” said award chair Heidi Madden of Duke University.
Deyrup’s project focuses on Italian-language resources published by and about the Italian minority communities of Dalmatia and Istria for the past two centuries and will involve substantial archival work. This research will result in an annotated bibliography, a directory of the publishing houses in Croatia and Italy that handle these materials and a narrative addressing the historical and cultural significance of these resources.
