Aims and objectives
This project aims to digitize a collection of Uruguayan newspapers published in Montevideo during the 19th century and the first part of the 20th.
• The River Plate Times (1889- 1890)
• The Montevideo Times (1891-1933)
• El Comercio del Plata (1845-1850)
• Le Patriote Français: journal commercial, littéraire et politique (1843-1850)
The selected periodicals are indispensable to study periods of the political, economic, social and cultural history of Uruguay and the River Plate region. They inform about a past that constitutes the basis of this country and of the complex stages prior to its political independence and cultural consolidation.
