Past Exhibits

  • The American Civil War was not fought just within the borders of the United States. There were global machinations as well as naval conflicts on the high seas.
  • Students in Professor Gérard Chouin's Fall 2014 HIST 282 Medieval African History course developed original posters illustrating the theme "Medieval Africa in History."
  • Continuing our annual tradition, this year's exhibit showcases the linguistic diversity that has proliferated since the poem’s publication more than 180 years ago.
  • Conducting historical research in animal studies presents some unique challenges. Non-human animals did not leave diaries or letters behind for historians to piece together life from the animals' perspectives. Therefore, researchers have to rely on materials produced by humans to access the historical lives of animals.
  • During her travels as a freelance photographer, Doris Baker was fascinated by the cultures of other countries, and the photographs she took during her excursions bring to light the lives of those she encountered.
  • Senior art students in Professor Nicole McCormick Santiago's ART 460 Senior Exhibition course each selected one of their sketches from the summer sketchbook project to be featured in an exhibit in Swem Library. Students were responsible for mounting and installing their own artwork and labels to learn about preparing their own artwork for exhibition.
  • October is Filipino American History Month and is a time to reflect on the Philippines history and culture, and allow all Americans the opportunity to learn and appreciate the Filipino and Filipino American contributions.
