March 23 marks the opening of the Pitts exhibition “Expressions and Encounters: Experiencing the Histories of African Christianity through the Archives of Pitts Theology Library.” Curated by GDR student Jennifer Aycock, the exhibition will provide students and researchers glimpses into the diverse collections held by Pitts Theology Library that may be used in telling the histories of African Christianity. The exhibition will display periodicals, monographs, sacred texts, missionary correspondence, and church archives selected from Pitts’ Sub-Saharan African Collection in order to suggest ways that the Sub-Saharan African collection, along with Emory’s other resources and holdings, invite multiple trajectories of research on African Christianity.
The exhibition will run until July 20, 2018. All are invited to view the exhibition any time the library is open. We are also pleased to offer tours. Tour groups meet at the library entrance. Please register at the links below:
Pending docent availability, we can arrange tours at other times during library hours as well. To arrange a tour, please contact Hannah Parks at hcparks [at] emory [dot] edu.
