Historical celebrities traveling to SCSU
Monday, April 3, 2006
The library at SCSU has been selected by the American Library Association to host two traveling exhibits: "Elizabeth I: Ruler and Legend" in fall 2006 and "Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America" in fall 2007.
Preparations are well under way for the first exhibit, scheduled for Aug. 25 to Oct. 5, which focuses on the historical and cultural forces that shaped Elizabeth’s personality and time. The exhibit examines Queen Elizabeth’s life and career as a head of state, reveals the political workings of her court, examines the cultural and diplomatic worlds of England and Europe in the late 16th century, and explores the queen’s legacy from the time of her death to today.
Learning Resources & Technology Services is planning a full semester of events to complement the free six-week exhibit on Queen Elizabeth, including speakers and an opening celebration with costumes and music. Faculty members are also making plans to integrate the subject and the exhibit itself into material they teach in the classroom.
