Events

To celebrate Archives Month, we’re inviting you to join us in a Transcribe-A-Thon during the last week of October.

On March 4, Julian Barnett, artist-in-residence in UVM's Department of Theater and Dance, will give a performance/lecture highlighting his most recent professional work, shedding light on multicultural processes and contexts, and examining the role vulnerability has played in his choreographic life.

The current exhibit in Silver Special Collections, "Work of Art: Dancing Together in Vermont," examines the process involved in creating diverse dance communities.

 

Join us as we celebrate the launch of a new book by Stephen Terry and student research assistant Louis Augeri.

Fleming Museum curator Alice Boone curated the new Special Collections exhibit, “Archives of Activism.” Drawing from documents and ephemera produced by students, faculty, and administrators, the exhibit focuses on anti-war and related protests during the late 1960s, the call for divestment from apartheid-era South Africa in 1985, and the occupations and protests of 1988 and 1991.
