The Mellon Scholars Program, with special thanks to the Van Wylen Library, is excited to share an opportunity to see digital scholarship in action: Dr. Jesse Sadler, a historian and digital humanist.

Jesse Sadler received a Ph.D. in European History from UCLA in 2015. He has taught courses on cultural and intellectual history of early modern Europe and the Atlantic at UCLA, and has published articles on political culture and the intellectual circle around Spinoza. He is currently working on a manuscript that argues for the significance of sibling relationships and inheritance in the development of early modern trade. His work integrates tools of Digital Humanities, and he recently released an package for the R programming language that facilitates the analysis of historical non-decimal currencies.

Dr. Sadler will also be teaching a workshop, Coding for the Humanities, on Friday, Nov. 16th, from 12-6pm; the workshop is open to faculty, staff, and students across the college, and seating is limited -- please sign up here:  More information can be found here:; and a schedule and details will be sent out to participants the week of the workshop.
