Paper Monuments: Reading Scrapbooks to Understand the History of Hate in America, Ellen Gruber Garvey
October 27, 5:30-6:30 p.m., Room 300, Humanities, Belknap Campus
Men and women 150 years ago grappled with information overload by making scrapbooks. During and after the Civil War, Northerners and Southerners read different newspapers and read them differently. They accused each other of promulgating fake news, even as they all saved their records of living through momentous events. Immediately after the war, Southern scrapbooks mark a turn to lost cause ideology. At the same time, some African Americans began making massive scrapbook compilations.
