Description:

“Feminist Periodicals in the Year of The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Engaging Archives: Feminist and Queer Encounters from Northwestern University Libraries’ Special Collections” were produced in two undergraduate classes: “Feminist Periodicals” by English 101 (“The Handmaid’s Tale: Women, Speculative Fiction, and Dystopia,” taught by Helen Thompson) and “Engaging Archives” by Gender & Sexuality Studies 350 (“Queer and Feminist Archives,” taught by Kyle Kaplan).

“Feminist Periodicals in the Year of The Handmaid’s Tale: Women’s Solidarity and the Backlash in 1985” offers archival testimony to The Handmaid’s Tale’s engagement with feminism in mid-80s America and beyond. The exhibition reveals an empowered American and global feminism in the ’80s. Selected from periodicals in the Femina Collection at Northwestern’s Charles Deering McCormick Library of Special Collections, these archival images and accompanying analyses show the collective energies of feminists in various journalistic, cultural, professional, religious, and political spheres.

The artifacts in “Engaging Archives: Feminist and Queer Encounters from Northwestern University Libraries’ Special Collections” show the lived experiences of people who identify as women and/or queer in order to contest their silencing within heteronormative, patriarchal histories. These artifacts bear important legacies that speak to the issues faced by these communities then and now. “Engaging Archives” investigates these artifacts in the context of queer and feminist history to stress the importance of sexual and gender identity for narrating history and understanding the political issues of our own moment.
