Over the Spring 2023 semester, students in Professor Charles Weisenberger’s HIST330 course developed research projects in collaboration with Amanda Nelson and Special Collections & Archives. “Undergrounded” is the culmination of these projects: seven student exhibits examining topics ranging from queer organizing during the AIDS epidemic to the role of faith at the university to yellow peril and the phenomenon of Boon Tan on Wesleyan’s campus. Each exhibit deals with themes of power, bigotry, community, and the struggle to build a better world. Together, they offer different perspectives on the good, bad, and contentious aspects of Wesleyan’s shared past. In drawing these narratives to light, the students intend to allow viewers to analyze and interact with various histories previously buried within the archives, hence the name “Undergrounded.”
