Zweig at Fredonia: 50 Years of Transformation

As part of the 2017-2018 Convocation Series at Fredonia, “Transformations”, please join the Archives & Special Collections of Reed Library and the Department of English in recognizing the 50th anniversary of the Stefan Zweig Collection at Reed Library and the 75th anniversary of the death of its creator, the Austrian author Stefan Zweig (1881-1942).

Zweig at Fredonia: 50 Years of Transformation will include three separate events in October and November 2017, all of which lend variant meanings to the theme of transformation by focusing on questions of exile, race, national identity/nationalism, and loss of cultural heritage.
  • Exhibit tracing the evolution of the Zweig archive at Fredonia from its inception in 1967 (25 October – 19 November 2017, exhibit opening 25 October 2017)
  • "Unpublished Racism: Stefan Zweig on Blackness in America", lecture given by Dr. Ashwin Manthripragada (25 October 2017)
  • The Destruction of Memory, film with a post-screening panel discussion featuring the film’s writer and director, Tim Slade (13 November 2017)

All events are free and open to the public. For further information, please see the Zweig at Fredonia blog.
