Centre for Early Modern Mapping, News and Networks (Queen Mary University of London, Great Britain) http://www.cemmn.net/

The CEMMN is an interdisciplinary community of academics that works on the mapping of the news networks during the Modern Age. The objective is to discover through which routes the information was transmitted in the Modern Age, and to look for new ways to represent these maps through digital resources.

The above Centre forms part of the News Networks in Early Modern Europe project (directed by Joad Raymond), subsidised by the Leverhulme Trust, whose objective has been to explore new approaches to the study of the news networks, and thereby form the basis for a History of European Journalism in the Modern Age. http://newscom.english.qmul.ac.uk/

Wrongdoing in Spain, 1800-1936: Realities, Representations, Reactions (University of Cambridge, Great Britain) http://timescape.mml.cam.ac.uk/wp-multiuser/wrongdoing/

The project studies the ways wrongdoing was represented in the Spanish popular printed sheets (chapbooks), between 1800 and 1936, and, thereby, the processes of production and consumption of popular culture. It attempts to trace the evolution from mediaeval songs to the pamphlets of the XIX century. It has proceeded to digitalise these popular printed sheets conserved in the University of Cambridge and the British Library.

 

The project Die Fuggerzeitungen has studied and cataloged avvisi and gazettes of the Fugger family in Austria. The project website provides digitized images as well as graphs, maps, etc. http://fuggerzeitungen.univie.ac.at/.
