Four groups of students prepared exhibits for ANTH 270 this semester. This project required them to become familiar with artifacts on a topic, research it using primary and secondary sources, and create a visually appealing and informative display.
One of the groups used ethnographic material collected by Dr. Rebecca Gearhart. Their exhibit, titled Rhythms of the East African Coast is located in a display case by the Anthropology department on the second floor of CLA.
The remaining three groups used materials from the University Archives. The exhibit titles and locations are as follows:
The Long Lost Fame of the IWU College of Law, 1st Floor, John Wesley Powell Rotunda
–photographs and documents related to the Bloomington law School and IWU College of Law.
Turbulent Titans: Student Issues from 1970-1971, 1st Floor, across from Circulation
–an analysis of issues tackled by the student publication “Rhetoric and Propaganda.”
The Center of the University: Its Rise and Its Demise, 3rd Floor, outside Thorpe Center
–photographs, an architectural plan and documents surrounding the history of Old Main/Hedding Hall/Duration Hall.
Great job, ANTH 270!
