Brittain Postdoctoral Fellow Lauren Neefe's English 1102 course "Romanticism's Social Media" celebrated the opening of their exhibit "Pulp, Print, Post" Thursday, November 19, at the Robert C. Williams Paper Museum. The exhibit is the culmination of a semester-long project in the multimodal-composition course, for which

To make the broadsides, the students pulled their own cotton paper; carved linoleum blocks for relief-printing their designs; and then pressed the designs onto the paper they made. The Papermaking Museum was an important partner in the project, seeing the broadside project successfully to completion from pulp to press, as was Georgia Tech librarian Alison Valk, founder of the Georgia Tech Library's Communication Through Art program, who guided the students' designs and carving.

The broadsides went on display on the first floor of the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons on October 30. The students then installed them on eight-foot newspapered kiosks in the Members Lounge of the Papermaking Museum for the November 19 Poetry@Tech reading (Brigitte Byrd, Bruce Beasley, Andrea Cohen). As sponsor of the exhibit, the Office of the Arts supported the creation of the exhibit's custom kiosks and signage and is now displaying the broadsides in the Richards Gallery at the Ferst Center for the Arts through January 2016.
