Stop by the library’s first floor lobby to explore archival resources that chronicle the ways Jewish students, faculty, and staff have advocated for themselves at Davidson over time. Jessica Cottle, the library’s Justice, Equality, and Community Archivist, shares that the display is intended to “showcase the work of and reinvigorate the conversation prompted by the Jewish Studies Working Group we collaborated with in 2019 through the HIS 396 independent study with Scott Denham. Most of those students graduated in the spring of 2021, so we wanted to show the research they had compiled in collaboration with us over the last two years related to this topic. I was able to piece together the timelines largely through research we’d found with them.”
Brought to you by the library’s Outreach & Engagement Committee, the display spans 1931- present and includes archival documents, photographs, and access to digitized oral histories.
