In conjunction with the John Carter Brown Library (JCB) institutional partner LAGLOBAL research network at the University of London and researchers at the Library, “Global Americana” highlights the JCB’s globe-spanning collection and the ingenuity of scholars from around the world who are taking advantage of its materials to advance research in a global frame. Cohering around the American continent, the texts speak to connections that move beyond continental and disciplinary borders, from China to the Nile, from natural history to the philosophical treatise, from indigenous Andeans to European creoles and American whalers. Many of the pieces in the exhibition were chosen by scholars who have either been in residence at the JCB or who are part of a global network that seeks to emphasize Latin America’s place at the center of global historical developments. Open 9:00 am-5:00 pm Monday through Friday. John Carter Brown Library, Main Green.
