Speaking Up: Fifty Years of Student Publications at UCI
Monday, May 2, 2016 through Friday, July 22nd, 2016, (Special Collections & Archives, 5th Floor of Langson Library)
Speaking Up: Fifty Years of Student Publications at UCI showcases a variety of student-generated writing from throughout the history of the campus. Bringing together periodicals, newsletters, literary magazines, and other materials from University Archives in Special Collections & Archives, this exhibit examines how students and student organizations make their voices heard within the UCI community and beyond. The publications reflect engagement with many pressing issues, from political debates about war and peace to efforts to promote equality and diversity in the curriculum, on the campus, and in society more broadly.
The exhibit is a joint effort of the UCI Libraries’ Special Collections & Archives and the UCI Office of the Campus Writing Coordinator.
Curated by Steve MacLeod, Public Services Librarian, and Laura Uglean Jackson, Assistant University Archivist. Assisted by Jens Lloyd, Campus Writing Fellow. Additional assistance from Allison Dziuba, Maureen Fitzsimmons, Lance Langdon, and Jasmine Lee.
