Experience the story of the color red situated within global perspectives that tell stories about objects from UO Libraries, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, and UO Museum of Natural and Cultural History contextualized by student research essays from Dr. Vera Keller’s course Global History of Color, 1400-1900, faculty research writings, and map visualization. Demos and rare book display from UO Libraries Special Collections and University Archives, UO Libraries Beach Conservation Lab, and UO Craft Center will be available to experience and students from the course will be on hand to talk about their research.
