Listen to part of a conversation between a student and her history professor.

请听一位学生和她的历史教授之间的对话。
So I definitely want to write my term paper on American journalism in the 18th century.
所以我的学期论文想写关于18世纪的美国新闻业。
That old copy of the New York Daily Gazette you showed us, the one printed from the library’s microfilm.
你展示给我们看的从图书馆的微型胶卷中打印来的,那份年代很老的《纽约每日公报》。
Just seeing a newspaper that was published in 1789...that was really cool!
看到一份1789年印刷的报纸简直太酷了!
Yes, reading old newspapers can be a powerful experience, especially to a budding historian like yourself.
是的,读旧报纸是一种很有力的体验,尤其是对像你这样的历史学家新秀来说。
As a resource for scholars and researchers, I don’t think any form of publication really captures the day-to-day life of a community better than a local newspaper.
作为学者和研究者的一种资源,我认为没有任何形式的出版物能比一份当地报纸更好地捕捉一个地区的日常生活。
Yeah, I mean, I knew that the number of newspapers exploded in the 18th century,
是的,我是说,我知道18世纪时报纸的数量暴增,
but I figured they all deteriorated before the technology was invented to preserve them, or you know, make copies.
但是我以为它们在发明出保存技术或者能被复印之前全都损坏了。
Well, actually, before the mid-1800s, newspapers were printed on fairly sturdy paper made from cotton fibers.
事实上,在19世纪中期以前,报纸都印刷在非常坚硬的纸上,这些纸是用棉纤维做的。
Those that survived are in surprisingly good shape.
保存下来了的那些状况都相当好。
Are there many more copies of the Gazette on microfilm?
微型胶卷上还有很多其他的公报吗?
Yeah, we’ve got a great microfilm library on campus, you’ll find it invaluable, I’m sure, as you research your paper.
是的,我们学校里有一个非常棒的微型胶卷图书馆,我相信在你为论文做研究的时候,你一定会觉得它是无价之宝的。
Um, but also talk to the librarians because they are creating an online archive of their microfilm collection.
但是也记得和管理员们聊一聊,因为他们正在给他们的微型胶卷收藏创建一个网上的档案馆。
I’m not sure of the project’s status, but if it’s done, it’ll probably save you time.
我不太清楚这个项目现在的进度,但是如果已经完成了的话,可能会给你节省很多时间。
So, um, 18th-century journalism, you must realize that that topic is too broad for this assignment.
所以......18世纪的新闻业,你一定要意识到,这个题目对这次的作业来说太大了。
I do. So one idea I had was like looking at an important world event like maybe the French revolution of 1789, since we just finished a unit on it.
我知道,所以我的一个想法是讨论一个重要的世界事件,比如1789年法国大革命,因为我们刚学完这个单元。
