Please join us for the inaugural season of the Kislak Center’s Graduate Student Lecture and Exhibition Series. 

PhD students from Penn’s history department will deliver brief lectures alongside a display of materials they have curated  from the Penn Libraries Special Collections. 

The Spring 2016 presentations will all relate to topics in 20th Century American history.  The student curator will give a short talk about their choice of materials and the relevant historical context and then be available for questions and provide time for visitors to browse the display. 

The presentations will begin at 5pm in the Lea library on the 6th floor of the Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center.  Following the talks and Q&A, there will be a wine and cheese reception in the Goldstein Lobby.
