17th Century Multimedia Archive

17th Century Multimedia Archive


Maureen E. Mulvihill's multimedia archive on a long-contested subject in 17thC authorship, her Thumbprints of 'Ephelia', originally hosted (2001-early 2013) by Millersville's ReSoundings e-journal, may now be viewed at this new redirect link:


The Thumbprints is an extraordinary archive of work, engaging the mediums of print, image, and sound. It has been valued by colleagues in literary studies, feminist studies, the visual arts, rare books, and the history of the book. This archive shows us the broad & flexible possibilities of scholarly work in the e-medium. 

Do take a look. It opens with a short music clip of rousing court music by Henry Purcell (turn on your speakers). In July 2013, Dr Mulvihill is the Keynote Speaker, Margaret Cavendish Society Conference, Sundance, Utah, speaking on frontispiece portraits of women writers in their printed books pre-1700.
