GUEST CURATOR
Middlebury German Language School and Davis Family Library Special Collections
2017

As guest curator for the Middlebury College’s German School in Vermont, I developed a school-wide exhibit titled Luther: eine Nachschau [Luther: A Look Back], a modern, critical interpretation of Martin Luther and the Reformation. The program was a collaboration between German school faculty and students, and colleagues at the Middlebury Davis Family Library Special Collections. Developing and organizing the program involved working closely with professors to guide undergraduate and graduate student research and production of creative interpretive materials. The goal was to create a program produced by students for students. The pop-up exhibit was stationed in the Library’s foyer during the last week of the summer semester. Students and staff from various departments also attended the opening, as did other community members and German-speaking residents of Middlebury.

Students’ projects included:

  • Biographical Timeline
  • Comics
  • Dioramas
  • Newspaper Articles
  • Poetry
  • Radio Shows and Interviews
  • Recipes
  • Research and Transcriptions
  • Video Interviews
