In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Maya Angelou’s autobiography, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings", Special Collections & Archives will host an exhibit featuring materials from Maya Angelou’s Film and Theater Collection held at Wake Forest University.
Visiting scholar Julie Park will talk about her research on 18th century commonplace books. A reception will follow in ZSR Special Collections & Archives. Dr. Park is a scholar of English literature and culture of the long 18th century. Her research examines the unexpected ways in which human subjects are inseparable from the material things, environments and devices of everyday life in historical contexts. Her areas of specialty include material and visual culture, history of subjectivity, the history and theory of the novel, genre and gender studies and archival studies. Sponsored by Z. Smith Reynolds Library and the Wake Forest Humanities Institute.
