An introduction of the new Beinecke Library building-wide exhibition, “Revisiting the Past—Imagining the Future,” on view from January 27 through July 9.
Tim Young, curator of modern books and manuscripts, and an organizer of the exhibition, will share an overview of the show and some of its highlights.
This exhibition features books, manuscripts, and visual materials from many different time periods and locations. Some of the materials have been at Yale for decades, others have only recently been added to the collections.
What brings these items together? The groupings of materials on view in this exhibition—selected by curators from the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, subject specialists in the Area Studies department of Sterling Memorial Library, and Yale undergraduates—act as focused lessons in pairing the old with the new. We hope they kindle your imagination.
Mondays at Beinecke online talks focus on materials from the collections and include an opening presentation at 4pm followed by conversation and question and answer beginning about 4:30pm until 5pm.
