The message below concerns the establishment of a blog that provides useful information concerning the library database, Independent Voices  .   The database is an ongoing digitization project supported in part by Auburn University Libraries that chronicles the transformative decades of the 60s, 70s and 80s through alternative press magazines, journals, and newspapers. This interdisciplinary project is of interest to women and gender studies, sociology, political science, history, communication and multicultural studies among others.

 

Dear Independent Voices supporter,

 

Several weeks ago I was contacted by Jeremy Guida, who just finished his PhD at University of California Irvine.  Jeremy spent two years researching the underground press. Independent Voices was an important tool in his work. Jeremy said he was interested in writing a blog for us and I delightedly accepted his offer!  We decided to call our blog Digging the Underground.

 

Yesterday we published Jeremy's first blog post, Remembering the Human Be-In. The blog post makes for great reading and is scholarly to boot.  I think you will find his posts will be helpful in better understanding the value of the content in the collection. Also, our hope is the blog will be a great internal marketing tool for you to raise awareness of Independent Voices with faculty members who are teaching and researching in areas related to the late 20th century culture.

 

We expect to publish a new blog post every one to two weeks, with guest bloggers filling in from time-to-time.  Next week look for another blog post from Jeremy about our latest addition to Independent Voices, East Village Other. There is currently no way to subscribe to the blog, but we'll be fixing that soon.  In the meantime, I'll send you a quick note when new entries are added.

 

Use the comment section to let us know what you think. Tweet a link to your followers. Forward this email to your colleagues. Do whatever you can to spread the word so as many people as possible will get hip to this great new resource!

 

Warm regards,

Peggy

A new subject guide has just been created to celebrate Women's History Month (March):  10 Centuries of Plays by Women .

Based on a 2015 article by Susan Jonas in American Theatre, the guide covers 60 plays from the late 10th. Century through the end of the 20th.  The list includes plays that are often a reflection of the playwright's times.  Included in the list are well known plays like A Raisin in the Sun (1959) by Lorraine Hansberry to newly rediscovered plays like Rachel Crothers' A Man's World (1909).   The earliest plays are by Hrotsvitha, a Benedictine nun of the late 10th. Century and the last play, published in 1999, is And What of the Night? by Maria Irene Fornes.   The guide provides links for biographical information plus information concerning plays of the 19th. and 20th. Century.

The 10 Centuries of Plays by Women  guide is located under the Subject Guides tab located in the upper central portion of the Auburn University Libraries homepage .  Next, click on the All Guides link and then click on the 10 Centuries of Plays by Women link.
