Welcome to Await Another Voice

Here you will find a wide range of exhibits featuring maps, zines,19th-century letters from Mexican revolutionaries, 20th-century documents from civil rights movement organizations, and more!

These exhibits are the capstone projects for students in the Spring 2017 Liberal Arts Honors class titled LAH 350: Treasure Hunt in Campus Archives. In this class students developed their archival research skills together at the Harry Ransom Center and then explored other collections across the campus (including the Dolph Briscoe Center, the Benson Latin American Collection, the Fine Arts Library, and the Perry Castenada Library Maps Collection). Their goal was to build their own online exhibits featuring and contextualizing individual items to show how they could serve as springboards into original research into local, national, and international topics--especially related to the history and culture of the pursuit of social justice.

The students and their instructor, Elon Lang, are very proud to be able to offer a small glimpse into these seldom seen materials. We are also very grateful to the staff of UT’s libraries and archives for all their help this year, especially: Elise Nacca, Eric Colleary, Andi Gustavson, Joan Sibley, Theresa Polk and the fellows at the Human Rights Documentation Initiative, Margaret Schlankey, Ellen Cunnigham-Kruppa and the Ransom Center’s Conservation Department, Melanie Cofield, Katherine Strickland, Allyssa Guzman, Rebecca Pad, and Christina Bleyer.
