“Revolucionarias: Women and the Formation of the Cuban Nation,” Smathers Library Gallery, University of Florida. March 31, 2014 – May 23, 2014.

Curated by Margarita Vargas-Betancourt and Lillian Guerra with assistance from Alexis Baldacci and Daniel J.Fernandez-Guevara.

“Revolucionarias” is a bilingual exhibition that highlights the many ways in which women were active and vital participants in Cuba’s revolutions. Exhibit items are organized into five thematic groupings, which reflect the wide reaching effect of revolution; promises of the revolution, women revolutionaries, food and domestic life (shown here), disruption of families, and political prisoners.

In addition to this exhibit being curated with assistance from humanities graduate assistants, the photo here comes from the collaborative Library Exhibit Tumblr, which showcases exhibits in libraries, with many being collaborations among teams including librarians, archivists, teaching faculty, and graduate researchers.
