Ben Irvin won an SBSRI Graduate Assistance Award to conduct research in the
newly digitized archive, Early American Newspapers (1690-1876). Ben has also
been accepted to present at a conference co-sponsored by the University of
Orleans and the University of Paris VII-Denis Diderot, "From Colonies into

international community of European and American scholars of the colonial and
Early Republican periods.
