From rare books to political cartoons, queer narratives to women’s history, there’s something for everyone in the University Libraries’ newly published digital exhibitions.
Even though the doors are closed, you can still experience the range and depth of the special collections. While the pandemic has put a pause on in-person exhibitions, curatorial staff have been ramping up production of digital equivalents. You can explore them safely, day or night, and with no need to find parking.
A list of recently published exhibitions follows:
- The Cartoons of Dwane Powell
- Climbing the Hill: Women in the History of UNC
- Historic Moneys in the North Carolina Collection
- Narratives of Queer Identity
- Organized Womanhood: North Carolina Women and the Ongoing Struggle for Political Inclusion
- Papers for the People: A Treasury of North Carolina News Sources
And be on the lookout for these upcoming digital exhibitions in spring 2021:
- Archival Seedlings: Cultivating Community Archivists in the American South
- Documenting Disruption: Preserving Family Histories in Hard Times
- Enriching Voices: African American Contributions to North Carolina Literature
- On the Move: Stories of African American Migration and Mobility
- Race Deconstructed: Science and the Making of Difference
When the exhibitions program resumes, expect to see a digital correlate for each future in-person exhibition in the Wilson Special Collections Library. It’s one more way the University Libraries is working to make its collections more accessible.
