Please join the Division of Special Collections and the Department of History for a curator’s talk next Tuesday, April 21, from 3:30-4:40 PM in the A.S. Williams III Americana Collection reading room on the third floor of the Gorgas Library.
This curator’s talk is in honor of two new exhibitions in the University Libraries. Making Confederates, by Lindsay Smith and Melissa Young, is located in the reading room of the Williams Collection. When This Cruel War is Over, by Katie Deale, is mounted in the lobby of the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library on the second floor of Mary Harmon Bryant Hall.
Lindsay, Melissa, and Katie are PhD students in History who worked closely with Special Collections staff over the past semester to develop their shows; you can read more about their process in their interview series, “Curating the Confederacy” which ran in a five-part series this week. You can also see selected items from their exhibitions through Cool@Hoole’s social media presence on Twitter and Facebook.
Making Confederates and When This Cruel War is Over will be on display in Williams and Hoole respectively through Fall 2015.
We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday!
