    Writing with Scissors: 19th-Century Activists & Their Scrapbooks

    Men and women 150 years ago grappled with information overload by making scrapbooks—the ancestors of Google and blogging. Mark Twain and Susan B. Anthony, abolitionists and Confederates, African American janitors and farm women cut out and pasted down their readings for various purposes. Professor Ellen Gruber Garvey, New Jersey City University, will discuss these various perspectives on scrapbooks as conversations.
