The Dynamics of Migration in the Early Modern World

Welcome to People, Religion, Information Networks, and Travel – Migration in the Early Modern World (PRINT). This project is a collaborative effort to trace the communication networks of early modern European religious minorities and the ways they shaped the dynamic patterns of migration in the Atlantic world. Housed at the University of Central Florida, PRINT seeks to create a database of correspondence and then visualize the complex connections that arose in response to religious persecution and missionary work. Our goal is to work with archives and citizen transcribers to provide access to documents not readily available and to create tools to foster new textual and network analysis.
