THE JOHN CARTER BROWN LIBRARY staff and invited curators prepare public exhibitions of material selected from the collections.
|The Americas on Fire, the Library's current exhibition, will be on view through June 2017. Guest curated by historians Jake Frederick (Lawrence University, USA) and Júnia Furtado (Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil), The Americas on Fire depicts fire harnessed for agriculture, embraced as a mechanism for communicating with the divine realm, and wielded in combat by Native Americans and European colonizers alike. Visit the JCB during regular hours to view the exhibit and check back here shortly to view the exhibit's digital component.
Recent exhibitions may also be visited virtually. The online version serves as a record of an exhibition and ensures that our audience will be able to view the treasures of the John Carter Brown Library from any place on earth with internet access. Many of these books may be seen in their entirety online on the JCB's Internet Archive site.
The digital component of the most recent exhibition, Women of the Page, will be available soon.
