Historias Entrelazadas: Texto e imagen, 1500-1837 / Intertwined Histories: Text and Image, 1500-1837 is currently on show in the Special Collections Foyer on the 2nd floor of Bobst Library. Curated by students in Professor Julia Hernández's undergraduate class, "Spanish 360: Literaturas de Encuentro/Literatures of Encounter", the exhibition showcases a selection of books from the NYU Special Collections and other NYC libraries that students worked with over the course of the semester. Through photography and text, the exhibition documents their engagement with these books, and their research into the intertwined histories of diverse global cultures in contact with Iberian peoples in the early modern period. The exhibition is on display until May 15, 2023.

Committed to Diversity? Keep it 100. Marginalized Histories of Early 20th Century NYU opens on May 5th on the 2nd floor North Lounge at Bobst Library. The exhibit, curated by the Memorializing Marginalized Histories of NYC class in collaboration with the NYU Archives, explores the inclusivity, and lack thereof, found at NYU approximately one hundred years ago. It features a variety of archival materials, including yearbook photos, biographical records, newspapers, and more. Please join us in a reflection on our university’s past and the stories of those who propelled NYU to be the institution we know it as today.
