Library Week: Gender Studies Isn’t New Exhibit LaunchExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, October 3, 2023 — 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM EDT

Gender-based attacks often coincide with moral panics about societal change. The sentiment behind these responses is often tied to the belief that something perceived as new or different is a threat when it has, instead, always been present but talked about in different or less immediately visible ways.

Since the Library’s Special Collections & Archive opened in 1976, items related to women, gender, and sexuality have actively been collected and maintained. This new exhibit features archival records that reflect the persistence of gender-based study, research, and activities over time, working to disrupt the notion that questioning and examination of gender in our daily lives is a new or unique phenomenon.

Drop by during Library Week on Tuesday October 3 from 11 a.m. to noon to view the exhibit and talk with SCA staff. The exhibit will stay up in Dana Porter’s first floor throughout the fall term.
