What Objects Can Teach Us: Explore UNE’s Special Collections and Archives

The archives hold many stories. While we associate stories with writing, objects evoke narratives that are complex and layered. What happens when we look closely at archival objects for lessons about their purpose? What can we understand without written documentation? Come explore some objects held in the archives at UNE to hone your observational skills, ask questions about the past, and think about the significance of the objects that you collect. Cathleen Miller, Education and Outreach Archivist and Maine Women Writers Collection Curator Sarah Baker will lead participants through a hands-on activity with historical objects.


Time: 12:15 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Instructor: Cathleen Miller and Sarah Baker
In Person only: Biddeford Campus, Ketchum Library Art Gallery
