The Emma B. Andrews Diary Project is proud to be a member of Newbook Digital Texts, founded in 2012 by Walter Andrews, Mary Childs and Sarah Ketchley at the University of Washington.
Our project goals:
- To preserve and make freely available lesser known or understudied literary and historical texts from the Near East.
- To develop a new hybrid model of rigorous training in the core skills associated with historical and literary research, coupled with essential competencies in computer literacy.
- To further the advancement of digital humanities as a field in order to foster much needed technical skills in graduate and undergraduate humanities students.

Sarah is an Affiliate Instructor in Near Eastern Languages and Civilization at the University of Washington, an Adjunct Associate Professor at University of Maryland University College, and a Digital Humanities Specialist at Gale. She trained as an Egyptologist, specializing in art history in the first millennium. She has taught courses Egyptian history and archeology at the University of Birmingham, UK, and teaches digital humanities at the University of Washington.
Each year we have been fortunate to have a dedicated group of student interns working with us, who are valued and equal partners in our research endeavors. The scope of the tasks they have worked on includes transcribing, editing, conducting historical research and managing technical aspects of the project.
