In the seventeenth century, imperial elites used information pulled from many sources to exert control over the Atlantic world. Phillip Emanuel, doctoral candidate in History, will discuss how manuscripts, letters, and travel writings influenced imperial expansion, while emphasizing the roles of non-elites in the creation of information. See examples of select seventeenth-century sources on display and learn more about how information influences our lives.
