A New Exhibition, with Audio

We’ve just installed “Beyond Domesticity: U.S. Women Writers, 1770-1915,” our first major show in our new gallery. It was curated by Katherine Adams and Cynthia Davis, two English department faculty members, and is a broad – and deep – survey of American womens’ lives and writings during the “long” nineteenth century.

And, there is an audio guide. You can download 5 mp3 files and take the tour anytime our library is open (M-F, 8:30-5:00), or sign out a pre-loaded iPod at our registration desk and take the tour, which is narrated by Professors Adams and Davis.

For more information, and to download, go here and here. Or, scan this QR code into your phone and follow the links to download. Enjoy!
