This digital archive of Asian Library highlights is created and maintained by the Asian Library, a department of the Special Collections & Libraries at The Claremont Colleges Library. The site currently contains three exhibits:
Interpretations of Shakespeare, or, What You Will is based on exhibits on display in The Claremont Colleges Library and Denison Library during Spring 2016 for The Claremont Colleges’ celebration of Shakespeare’s legacy 400 years after his death. Curated by three Pomona College students: Emma Fredgant (2017), an English major; Alana Friedman (2016), an English major; and Pieter Hoekstra (2017), a Religious Studies major, as part of their SURP/CCEPS Fellowship during Summer 2015, the students explored primary and secondary sources to discover their own approaches to Shakespeare in order to create exhibits commemorating Shakespeare’s legacy.
Science, Religion, and Everything in Between: Early Modern Science Texts was curated by Claremont McKenna College student, Lindsey Betts (2016) as part of her CCEPS Fellowship in Fall 2015. A Literature major, Lindsey’s project was to gather and present a variety of 17th and 18th century science literature existing within Special Collections.
