Family Secrets: Uncovering Identity in 19th Century America
This student-curated exhibit focuses on the theme of secrecy and how it has shaped our inquiry into how the family, as an institution and an ideal at the heart of debates about American identity and national belonging, has changed over time. The materials gathered here represented various ways in which cultural concepts of family evolved in both public and private ways.
Curated by: Grace Argo and the Students of History 195, Fall 2022, with Maggie Vanderfold and Julie Fremuth at the Clements Library.
Exhibit Hours: Mondays and Fridays, 10am – 2pm. Exhibit on display until April 17th.
