Inclusivity is foundational to the library's Core Values: "We advocate for, support, and further intellectual freedom while respecting and celebrating differences of identity, experience, and perspective." Positioned at the center of the richly diverse Claremont Colleges, the library is committed to providing our students, faculty, and staff with a welcoming and safe space for discovery, intellectual engagement, and reflection.

Curating the Civil War and the West: Stories in 5,000 Square Feet
Carolyn Brucken, curator at the Autry National Center and adjunct professor for Claremont Graduate University
Honnold/Mudd Library, Founders Room | 4:15pm
Dr. Carolyn Brucken speaks to the challenges and possibilities in curating an exhibition on the Civil War and the West. Drawing on the exhibition, scheduled to open in April 2015 at the Autry National Center, this talk explores what is lost and what is gained in the process of bringing academic histories of the Civil War and Western expansion together and in presenting these complex, often contentious, histories within the museum.
All Claremont Discourse lectures are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.
