The central focus of this project is to catalogue the serialization of Joseph Conrad’s Nostromo in T.P.’s Weekly throughout 1904. Special focus is given to the connection between the advertisements present on the pages of the publication which surround the physical space that the serials inhabit and their influence on the thematic development of the narrative and the audience reception of it.

“The May Weber Digital Collection,” Loyola University Chicago, Project Director: Dr. Catherine Nichols

The digital project side of The May Weber Ethnographic Study Collection is to provide public access to the collection as a means of both encouraging the study of ongoing effects of cultural interaction and as a way of decolonizing the documentation catalogue.
