Join us for a lecture by Elliott Shore on the evolving nature of collection contemporary culture from the 1970s into the twenty-first century. Dr. Shore was one of the early curators of Temple University Libraries’ Contemporary Culture Collection, which was originally established in 1969 to preserve the growing number of publications produced by the alternative press.

The program will be followed by a reception.
