A Michigan Library Scholar's Preservation of Family History
I always knew my grandfather could speak this odd sounding language, an ancient Spanish dialect that sounded like a mix of Spanish and Hebrew, both of which I was familiar with growing up Jewish in Southern Arizona. I knew that this was his first language, but I did not know much more than that about his heritage–my own heritage–until I became a part of the Michigan Library Scholars. These past few months have allowed me to learn more about my roots than I had ever imagined I would know.

Old Identities of a New Greece : A Michigan Library Scholar's Experience

Being a new transfer student, I was intimidated at first by the scope of the University of Michigan and its library, but when I heard that I could have the chance to work on an exhibit based on the Greek War of Independence through the Michigan Library Scholars Program, it was an opportunity I simply couldn't pass up. Not only was my experience one of learning, but also one of fun, as well as growth as a student and a professional.

Želmir Žilnik’s "Marble Ass": Pioneer of Post-Yugoslav LGBTQ+ Cinema

Directed by a master of the Yugoslov Black Wave movement, Marble Ass explores LGBTQ experience—in a part of Eastern Europe, moreover, often very hostile to non-normative identities and lifestyles—with an empathy and dignity rather ahead of its time. The film is also just a boisterous, darkly funny, and very satisfying watch.

Blood Sisters by Marilyn Yalom

In Blood Sisters, historian Marilyn Yalom tells the story of the French Revolution through the perspective of women’s memoirs. She studied the memoirs of over eighty women, of various ages and social classes, who lived through the French Revolution. Many of them were aristocratic or upper-class women, because they were more likely to be literate, but she also writes about memoirs by poor or working-class women that were dictated to someone else. All of the memoirs make for compelling stories.
