This exhibit, by Erika Hosselkus, Curator of Latin Americana, explores the history of newspapers, magazines, and the periodical print revolution in the colony and nation of Peru.
It draws on strengths of Rare Books and Special Collections’ José E. Durand Peruvian History collection. The collection features early Peruvian imprints and periodicals, including an impressive array of 19th-century newspapers, circulars, and popular song and verse imprints. Together these items offer diverse perspectives on Peruvian political events, and cultural and religious practices and preferences from the colonial era, through the country’s birth in 1825, and beyond the turn of the 20th century. This exhibit is free and open to the public. Visit Rare Books and Special Collections in Hesburgh Library to explore the collection.
