Don Quixote Throughout Time: Imagining the Man of La Mancha
This student-curated exhibit celebrates the legacy of Don Quixote. Originally created in 2015 to mark the 400th anniversary of the publication of Part II of Don Quixote (1615), in 2018 new essays by a second set of students were added. Exploring the cultural afterlives of Don Quixote in various media, the curators reveal the persistent vitality of the text and its enduring influence in Spain and beyond. A physical display (situated in Magill Library's Alcove Gallery) accompanied the original launch of this digital exhibit and included rare books from Quaker & Special Collections at Haverford, Bryn Mawr Special Collections, and the Haverford Libraries' circulating collections.
