“A Campus Divided” exhibit Uncovered (Online Workshop)

Learn about the popular 2017 Libraries exhibit, “A Campus Divided: Progressives, Anticommunists, Racists, and Antisemitism at the University of Minnesota 1930-1942,” and how the archival documents that were uncovered led to a campus-wide conversation around changing the names of buildings on the University of Minnesota campus.

Archivist Kate Dietrick will give a behind-the-scenes virtual look at the exhibit, share some historical documents that were important to the conversations surrounding name changes, and discuss the opportunities and limitations that archives provide when confronting the difficult histories of institutions.

A zoom link will be sent to those who registered about 1 day before the event.
