I’ll be hosting the inaugural event of the Arts & Letters’ Digital Archives Research Group next Wednesday, April 20, from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Liberal Arts Building 101. This is the first in what will become a yearlong series of events introducing faculty and students to the possibilities of working with archives and special collections at USM.
For next week’s event, the schedule will include a short talk by me on “Archival Curiosity” and my ongoing work with the H.A. & Margret Rey Papers; a talk about imperialism and the German origins of Curious George by Shane Hand, Ph.D. Candidate in History; and a series of fascinating presentations by my students on their archival discoveries from the de Grummond Children’s Literature Collection.
