University Libraries Launch Special Projects to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

The University Libraries invites the Seton Hall University community to contribute to several projects in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15 to October 15 by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of Hispanic and Latino/a/x peoples.

In collaboration with the Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute, the Library will be adding a select number of literary contributions by Hispanic and Latino/a/x authors. To participate in the literature selection process, please complete this survey.

Mi Voz, an e-repository, will collect personal essays, audio files and artwork from the Seton Hall University community. Contributors are asked to reflect on what being Hispanic or Latino/a/x in the United States means to them. The e-repository will be open to submissions until October 31, 2020 and contributors can submit their work here. The collection will ultimately be preserved in the archives’ digital preservation system.  “The Monsignor Field Archives and Special Collections Center is dedicated to building its collections to better represent the entire Seton Hall community, and collections like this will preserve the voices of today’s Hispanic and Latino/a/x students for future generations,” said Sarah Ponichtera, Assistant Dean for Special Collections and the Gallery.

The Walsh Gallery’s Nuestras Familias is a virtual photography gallery that will be premiering on October 1, 2020. The gallery will highlight members of the Seton Hall community and the families that support, encourage, and inspire them. Please send 300 DPI JPEG images along with the title of the image and the photographer credit to latinoinstitute@shu.edu by September 15, 2020.

Seton Hall University’s Hispanic Heritage Month Committee has united departments and student organizations for a month-long series of events and special project. This year’s theme, Navigating Latinidad, will look at what it means to identify as Hispanic and Latino/a/x and how that identity takes form in American society. By Navigating Latinidad, we can explore the labels chosen for us and their respective histories.

To learn more about the month’s activities, please visit: https://www.shu.edu/latino-institute/hispanic-heritage-month.cfm

Check back throughout the month to see blog posts and social media posts from student scholars and leaders about reading recommendations and ways to get involved in the SHU and greater Latinx and Hispanic communities.
