Past Exhibits

  • Between 1899 and 1902 the United States engaged in a war of imperialism in the Philippines. African-American soldiers were expected to "take up the white man's burden" during this war for a country that did not see them as full citizens against another people of color.
  • William & Mary Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center recently acquired 30 unpublished letters related to James Monroe, one of the College’s most famous alumni. Revealing new pieces of information throughout Monroe’s presidency, this collection of letters presents new and exciting opportunities for rediscovering America’s last founding father.
  • Scholarship On Display, located in Swem Library’s lobby, features publications and research from current faculty members in the Kinesiology & Health Sciences Department. 
  • Aaron Bayles '17 explores the connections that people create with locations around them and how we project positive emotions ("good vibes") onto these physical places through portraits of students in their favorite places on campus.
  • The Special Collections Research Center regularly acquires new materials for our University Archives, Manuscript, and Rare Book collections to provide valuable learning and research opportunities to the William & Mary campus community and beyond.
  • Wonderfully smart and insightful, and at times sad and painful, the queer comics on display in this exhibit were completed as part of a class assignment for Queer Comics (GSWS 290) in Fall 2016.
  • UnMade in Cuba is brought to you by W&M Libraries in partnership with the New Media Workshop, co-taught by Professor Ann Marie Stock (Hispanic Studies, Film and Media Studies) and Troy Davis (Director of Media Services).
