New Exhibit: The 1916 Easter Rising

Proclaiming a Republic: The 1916 Rising

We are pleased to announce a new exhibit on the 1916 Easter Rising which is being hosted by the Walsh Library Gallery and Archives & Special Collections.

The Easter Rising also known as the Easter Rebellion is perhaps the defining moment in modern Irish history. The Rising set the stage for events that changed the course of Irish history. However, the event itself was hampered by confusion and lack of support. On Easter Monday, April 24, 1916 rebel leader Pádraic Pearse read the Proclamation of the Republic from the front of the General Post Office (GPO) to a small and disinterested group of Dubliners.

You can also learn more by reading The Rising: Easter 1916 by Fearghal McGarry. This book focuses on the experiences of the people who participated in the Rising. McGarry uses eye-witness statements to tell the story of the rebels:

Current Exhibits in the Archives & Special Collections Center

Seton Hall University Libraries Archives & Special Collections Center is hosting a pair of exhibits currently on view:

The first is The Newark Uprising of 1967:

This period of civil unrest (between July 12 and July 17, 1967) was a protest by African-American residents in response to various discriminatory practices.  The causes associated with this event can be traced back through a long history of uneasy relations between lawmakers, law enforcement, and local citizens. Click here for more information.

The second is Women of Setonia 1937:

This year marks the 80th anniversary since women first attended lectures or taught courses at Seton Hall.  These trailblazers were part of the now defunct Urban Division established by then College President Monsignor James F. Kelley who provided a more inclusive educational experience for all qualified applicants. Click here for more information.

Kiki and Seton Smith: A Sense of Place

The Walsh Gallery, in collaboration with the Lennie Pierro Memorial Arts Foundation, is pleased to present Kiki and Seton Smith: A Sense of Place.

Key to this exhibition is the idea that place irrevocably impacts our sense of self. Kiki’s drawings and prints look to the natural world to understand the relationship between place and identity on a symbolic level. Seton’s large-scale photographs look to the built environment to convey associations by moving within, and navigating through, space. Contextualized in this manner, the artists explore the complex psychological and emotional terrain to be negotiated in understanding the self and the manner in which place becomes a defining characteristic of identity. The fragility of the human condition and the places we traverse in our mortal journey are the narrative impulse of this exhibition.

The Exhibition runs 10/30/16 to 12/9/16.

Join us to see why NJ.com calls this exhibit one “that shouldn’t be missed.”

50 years after the Second Vatican Council, scholars, clergy, and Catholics all over the world are still considering the impact of one of the major Church events of the last century. For those with an interest in religious studies or Church history, this is an important time of discussion, analysis, sharing, and review.

The Department of Catholic Studies has put together the event “Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Second Vatican Council: Celebrating the Decree on Ecumenism,” taking place tomorrow, November 21 2013. This afternoon event will feature speakers and a panel discussion on Unitatis redintegratio, the Council’s document on ecumenism. The full program linked above lists the speakers, topics, and timeline, and the main portion of the event will take place from 2:00 p.m.  – 5:00 p.m in the Chancellor’s Suite.

The Archives and Special Collections Center is participating in this special event with a display of collection materials related to the Council. Including materials from the John M. Oesterreicher papers, the George Shea papers, the Martin W. Stanton papers, the Walter W. Curtis papers, and the Mrs. Frank Whitrock scrapbooks, this selection highlights the involvement of some of those from the Archdiocese of Newark who participated in the Council, as well as how those at home saw it unfold. This display shows photographs, Council documents, writings, pamphlets, newsclippings, and invitations from these five collections and is just a small sample of related materials held at the A&SCC. More information can be found in the flyer put together by the Department of Catholic Studies. For more information on research materials related to the Second Vatican Council held by the A&SCC, consult our LibGuide page on Vatican 2 collections.

The A&SCC wishes to thank Dr. Ines Murzako and the entire Department of Catholic Studies as well as Dr. John Buschman, Dean of University Libraries, for inclusion in this event.
