About This Website

Who am I and why did I create this website?

My name is Victoria Nahley and I am a current undergraduate, graduating in December 2019. I attend Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, GA. I created this website as a submission for my Digital Humanities project for my class Is Print Dead? I wanted to create an open source website with information on Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz to assist students, teachers, and scholars.

What’s the goal of the Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz Database?

It is my personal opinion that scholarship on Cruz is lacking, especially compared to similar literary feminist writers like Wollstonecraft. I created this website and blog in response – and in hopes of encouraging & inspiring students, teachers, and scholars to study her. I hope this open source database will be useful to anyone who comes across it.

What if something on this website belongs me to and I don’t want it here?

I have made sure to cite all sources and provide appropriate links. I only take credit for compiling the data into one base and for my original translations. If something on this website is your work and you would like it removed, please contact me and I will remove it.

What if I want my work on Cruz added?

If you would like to make your work on Cruz (research, analyses, lesson plan, etc) available on this open source platform for others to use, please contact me via the contact page.
