Why not visit the current exhibitions at the University’s libraries?

Nyonin Geijutsu (Women’s Arts) 1928-32:
What were they fighting for?

8 July to 12 August 2011,
Law Library
Nyonin Geijutsu (Women’s Arts) was a left-wing feminist arts journal which appeared in Japan from 1928 to 1932. Many of the journal’s contributors went on to become leading writers, poets and journalists in the following decades. The journal had a distinctive visual style, which we celebrate in this exhibition

The love that dared speak its name:
Same-sex desires in the Victorian world

Exhibition Extended! Hurry, last days!
Rare Books & Special Collections, L2 Fisher Library

Draw back the curtains and peek at the influence of the Victorian world on modern sexuality. Trace the publication of rare and censored books. Discover how homosexual scandal and the fight for lesbian and gay rights were represented in a variety of different cultural milieus. Find out about the authors and theorists whose interest in same-sex desires contributed to our current understanding of freedom. After viewing this exhibition, you may conclude that Stonewall was the noisy grandchild of an older sexual reform.
