All Things New: An Open House at the Clark Library
Tuesday, October 11, 4:00pm

“All Things New: Imperialism and Impact”
October 11–December 20, 2011
The history of the world is one of greed, jealousy, warfare, and slavery. It is also one of curiosity, exploration, scholarship, ingenuity, and determination. Drawing on the Clark Library’s wealth of materials from the sixteenth century to the present, “All Things New: Imperialism and Impact” will take up and treat universal themes related to colonialism and imperialism in diverse places around the globe, from Colonial America to India, Africa, Ireland, and the Caribbean. The exhibition will consider the multiplicity of ways that empire building has influenced travel and description of faraway lands, printing and publishing (including the challenges to typography posed by new alphabets and languages), capitalism and greed, fashion and decorative arts, foodways and customs, religion, nationalism and rebellion.
Curated by Rebecca Fenning Marschall and Nina Schneider
