Testimonies in Art & Action: Igniting Pacifism in the Face of Total War was made possible by the generous contributions of many. The “Peace Testimonies in Literature & Art” Writing Seminars would like to express gratitude to the Haverford College Libraries. We would like to offer our appreciation for the Ethical Inquiry Course Development Fund awarded by the Office of the Provost, which allowed us to develop our digital platforms. We are grateful to the John B. Hurford ‘60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Distinguished Visitors Program, and the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship for their sponsorship and assistance. Many thanks go to the Writing Program, the Concentration in Peace, Justice & Human Rights, the Quaker Affairs Office, and administration at Haverford College for their contributions and support of this endeavor. Our appreciation also goes to the Society of Authors in Great Britain and Southern Connecticut State University for providing access to the digital archives of the Three Guineas Reading Notebooks, to the Library of the Religious Society of Friends at Friends House in London, to the archives of the American Friends Service Committee at Cherry Street in Philadelphia, and to the Royal Albert Hall Archives in London for allowing us to reproduce their archival images in the collage and on the walls.
And a big thank you to students Christina Bowen, Adetomiwa Famodu, Ann-Victoria Isaac, Sophie McGlynn, Marcelo Jauregui-Volpe, and Ian Wheeler for dedicating their summer hours to help with this exhibition.
A note to the reader and viewer:
In line with the feminist pedagogical ethos espoused by Virginia Woolf, Jane Marcus, and many others, all writing for this exhibition has been of a collaborative nature. Though attributed to the author whose voice has set the tone of the item, teams of student editors in cooperation with class members, J. Ashley Foster, and the Libraries staff have reviewed, fact-checked, and edited all the language and content of the exhibition.
