Size 0.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 500 items)
Abstract In the fall of 2017, Professor Jina Valentine's ARTS 391: Curatorial Practices class at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill created "Footnotes (revisions)," an exhibit exploring the 2015 renaming of Saunders Hall as Carolina Hall and responding to the permanent exhibit installed in Carolina Hall in fall 2016. The exhibit was on display in the John and June Allcott Gallery in Hanes Hall from November 9 to December 5, 2017, and presented visitors with an interactive experience modeled on a special collections reading room. Visitors could pull boxes from shelves and review folders of records at tables in the gallery. This collection includes the folders of documents featured in the exhibit, postcards provided for exhibit visitors to write their thoughts to Chancellor Carol Folt, and a copy of ruptures vol. 1, a zine by campus organization Feminists Liberating Our Collective Knowledge (FLOCK). Numbers following folder titles reflect the locations of the folders in boxes in the exhibit space. Originals of many of the documents featured in the exhibit may be found in the Wilson Special Collections Library.
