In the capstone seminar for the Archives Concentration, ARX 340 Taking the Archives Public, students created online, digital exhibits, some featuring archival materials from Special Collections. The exhibitions focus on topics such as single-sex “romantic friendships” at Smith College, black women's erotic history, women's activism during the AIDS epidemic, and methods of self-care and support in trans and gender non-conforming communities, among others.
This timeline first came out of a week-long course led by Special Collections Accessioning Archivist Kathleen Banks Nutter in January 2017 and was added to by students who took the class in January 2018.
