A new exhibition titled "The Americas on Fire" in the John Carter Brown Library depicts the inextricable link between fire and all facets of the American experience. Curated by historians Jake Frederick of Lawrence University and Júnia Furtado of Brazilian-based Federal University, the exhibition explores how fire was harnessed for agriculture, embraced as a mechanism for communicating with the divine realm and wielded in combat by Native Americans and European colonizers. The exhibition will be on display through June in the MacMillan Reading Room of the John Carter Brown Library, located on the College Green. Exhibition hours are Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Special viewing hours will be held for Commencement Weekend. For more information, contact jcb-events@brown.edu.
