This is the final post of a five-part series on Dr. Cardon’s English 103 classes and their project using Special Collections materials to create a physical display for exhibition in the W.S. Hoole Library Lobby. Read the first and second posts which provide an overview of the class and project and then look over student Annemarie Lisko’s piece and her interview if you haven’t yet had a chance!
The following are a few photographs from the reception last Thursday, December 4, 2014 in honor of the opening of Artifacts of Ancestry. We had around fifty attendees, including students from all three of Dr. Cardon’s sections of English 103, parents and family members of the curators, and a large portion of the local Tuscaloosa Genealogical Society. Thanks everyone for coming out and thanks to Muzel Chen from the Alabama Digital Humanities Center for taking photographs of the event.
