H&P: Traveling the State Through New Jersey Postcard Collections
Thursday, April 28, 2022, 4:00 PM EDT
Category: Committee or Section Meeting

Christine A. Lutz, New Jersey Regional Studies Librarian at Special Collections and University Archives at Rutgers University Libraries will introduce SC/UA's eclectic and voluminous postcard collections.

Ephemeral materials like postcards are more than pretty pictures. Postcards can play a valuable role in understanding local histories, and shed light on the natural and built environments, cultural landscapes, historic events, and popular culture and entertainment. Postcard images and messages can also reveal attitudes about class, race, gender, labor, leisure, and more.  

​Please join us Thursday, April 28 at 4:00 p.m. for this online event. For information and to register, see https://libcal.rutgers.edu/event/9081694
