The stylistic affinities of protest art across space and time are compelling evidence of historical ties and strategic convergence between seemingly disparate actors in the social justice and human rights movements. We invite you to further explore these issues in the Archive for Human Rights collections of the Rare Book Manuscript and Special Collections Library from which items in this exhibit are drawn.

"How full of life those days seemed": New Approaches to Art, Literature, Sexuality, and Society in Bloomsbury

-

The members of the Bloomsbury Group, active in England in the first quarter of the 20th century, explored alternative ways of living and advanced fresh ideas in the arts and social sciences. Their shared spirit of collaboration, community, and inquiry spurred the creation of works as diverse as Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway , J.M. Keynes's General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money , and Roger Fry's study of Cezanne. This exhibit features books and manuscripts from the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library that showcase the work of the Group's members. Among the items in the exhibit are books printed at the Hogarth Press, created and operated by Woolf with her husband Leonard.

Not Just Mad Men: Real Advertising Careers of the 1960's

-

This exhibit was inspired by the popularity of the AMC television series Mad Men, which centers on the lives of executives at a fictional advertising agency in the early 1960s. The series has generated much discussion among viewers, as well as among present-day advertising industry professionals and media outlets. Drawing from materials in the collections of the Special Collections Library’s Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising & Marketing History, the exhibit highlights the real-life careers of 1960s advertising professionals who held positions in four of the types of agency occupations depicted on the television series: copywriters; creative directors; art directors; and account executives.

Pivotal Books/Personal Reflections

-

Pivotal Books/Personal Reflections is an exhibit that explores the personal nature of books and the relationships that exist between reader and written word. There is a chemistry that can only exist in the private moment of reading; the images are fully formed within the readers mind and the exchange between the writer and reader is intimate and isolated and at times, personal. It doesn't matter whether the book is scholarly or children's literature; whether the reader is a professor or a mechanic; this potential relationship can exist for any person, regardless of race, social class, economic class, religion, mental ability or sexual preference; the only thing that matters is the desire for this relationship, and the ability to read (or be read to).

Songs of Glory, Songs of Sorrow : The Civil War in Music

-

The American Civil War remains the most devastating war in United States history, with deaths numbering about 618,000–more than in all the nation’s other wars combined, from the Revolutionary War through the Iraq War. This exhibit features sheet music and broadside verse expressing the triumphs and tragedies of the war’s battles, grieving mothers, soldier boys, flags, military officers, and even humor. Themes specific to the Civil War yet universal to all armed conflicts remind us of the high cost paid when peaceful solutions and diplomacy fail to win the day.

Danny Wilcox Frazier - Driftless: Photographs from Iowa

-

Danny Wilcox Frazier’s dramatic black-and-white photographs portray a changing Midwest of vanishing towns and transformed landscapes. As rural economies fail, people and resources are migrating to the coasts and cities, as though the heart of America were being emptied. Frazier’s arresting photographs take us into Iowa’s abandoned places and illuminate the lives of those people who stay behind and continue to live there: young people at leisure, fishermen on the Mississippi, veterans on Memorial Day, Amish women playing cards, as well as more recent arrivals, Lubavitcher Hasidic Jews at prayer and Latinos at work in the fields. Frazier's camera finds these newcomers while it also captures activities that seemingly have gone on forever: harvesting and hunting, celebrating and socializing, praying and surviving.

Day of the Dead at Duke University Libraries

-

In the Fall Semester 2007 the Archive for Human Rights sponsored a celebration of Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. The Latin American tradition of Dia de Los Muertos is an exercise in memory and memorilization. Not only family photos but also favorite foods, toys, personal and family objects, and other items closely associated with the deceased are juxtaposed on an ofrenda or altar, offering a number of different avenues of memory (documentary, sensual, communal) through which the living and the dead, the past and the present, can reunite.

This exhibit of early "funnies" is drawn from the volumes of the recently acquired American Newspaper Repository (ANR) which contains over 152 titles dating from 1852 through 2004. Long runs of The World and The Chicago Tribune provided material for the exhibit. At the turn of the nineteenth century, two newspaper titans, Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, were engaged in a bitter rivalry for supremacy in the New York market. The introduction of the color printing press and the modern "comic strip" was instrumental in their competition to circulate the most newspapers.
