      The Wangensteen Historical Library's new exhibit — "The Secret Lives of Books" — reveals the past and present secret lives of books and tells their captivating stories of health, illness, and the human experience. In an evolving exhibit experience, guest-curated exhibit vignettes will be changed each month to reveal more stories about rare books and their intersections with current events, historical experiences, and the research programs at the University of Minnesota.

      Reflections from an artist-in-residence

      Working with archival materials in quiet reading rooms for many hours during my spring residency at the UMN Libraries' Archives & Special Collections was a contemplative, productive, at times intense, surprising, and overall gratifying experience. I conducted research primarily in two collections: the Immigration History Research Center Archives (IHRCA) and the Wangensteen Historical Library of Biology and Medicine. My research objectives broadly included the Guatemalan Civil War, migration and trauma, historical conceptions of 'The Tropics,' mosquito-borne illnesses, indigenous treatments, and the confluence of race and disease.
