Student Projects

Taking the Archives Public

For their final projects, the students of ARX 340, the capstone seminar of the Archives Concentration, created exhibits using archival materials from the Sophia Smith Collection and College Archives.

Four physical exhibits which will remain on view in Alumnae Gym throughout the summer, were created by Grace Martin, Jeanne Lowrey, Amanda Ferrara and Margaret Barthel. Two digital narratives by Bethy Williams and Kayla Ginsburg can be viewed here:

To see capstone projects from past years go to the Archives Concentration website.

Documenting Lesbian Lives
A collection of interviews, conducted by Smith College students, of women who identify as lesbian, bisexual, woman-identified-woman, queer, or who prefer not to identify with sexuality categories. The project provides a complex and nuanced collective story of American lesbian history and experience.

An Activist Life
A collection of life histories of women who have dedicated their lives to social and political activism. Fifteen interviews document both the diversity and the persistence of women's activism, as organizers and as cultural workers, in a variety of social movements such as women's health, economic justice, LGBT liberation, peace, education, and environmental sustainability.
