Walsh Family Library and the Center for Jewish Studies at Fordham University have collaborated on an exhibit, “Banned! A History of Censorship,” which opened on September 20, 2023. The curators, Gabriella DiMeglio, Amy Levine-Kennedy, Hannorah Ragusa (FCRH ’26), and Magda Teter, in collaboration with Fordham alumni and the staff of O’Hare Special Collections, chose to explore the history of banned books. On display are books published between the 16th and the 21st centuries. The exhibit also links the larger history of censorship to the particular history of prohibited books at Fordham.
The exhibit is open to the Fordham community and to the public. You can find it in Walsh Library’s Exhibition Hall (first floor) and in the Special Collections (fourth floor). The exhibit will run until March 15, 2024, and there will be two guided tours featuring guest speakers. To register, follow the link here.
