Early Spring 2015 Events:
- February 2 – June 15, Women from the Archives & Special Collections exhibition,
Located on the second floor of the library, this exhibit will feature women authors, activists, scientists, and artists whose works are held in the University of Puget Sound Archives & Special Collections.
- Tuesday, February 3, at 4:00pm, Behind the Archives Door featuring Collecting the Northwest: Archives, Indians, Missionaries, and the Curation of Plateau Cultural Heritage, Trevor Bond, Head of Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections at Washington State University Libraries.
Missionaries to the inland Northwest created the earliest and most substantial archives of Plateau Indian culture. This illustrated presentation examines how collectors with varied motivations amassed American Indian cultural materials. Power and wealth influence who acquires collections and where collections reside often resulting in the geographical dispossession of cultural heritage. However, recent work centered on digital repatriation may provide one method for connecting cultural heritage with their respective communities.
