Stetz Publishes on Exhibitions in Undergraduate Education

the cover of the journal

Margaret Stetz, Mae and Robert Carter Professor of Women’s Studies and professor of humanities, is the author of an article in the 2020 special issue (with the theme of “Home”) of Fwd: Museums Journal, a publication affiliated with the Museum and Exhibition Studies Graduate Program, University of Illinois at Chicago

Her essay, titled “Laying Out a Case and Feeling at Home: Exhibitions in Undergraduate Education,” emphasizes the importance of teaching with and through material objects (including works of print culture) and doing so especially within the context of galleries and public exhibition spaces in university libraries. In making this argument, she refers to her own experiences as a self-taught curator of more than a dozen exhibitions and encourages other faculty members in diverse disciplines to feel “at home,”  too, in the world of display cases.
