Formal title:
Lauren Berlant papers
Extent:
3.5 linear feet
Date range:
1607-2015
Abstract:
Lauren Berlant’s papers survey her interest in the mechanisms of power relating to juridical and institutional “boundary-drawing” between public and private, white and non-white, and other types of socio-political relationships. These papers consist of diverse artifacts including published articles, unpublished creative-writing (poetry and prose), correspondence, conference notes, photographs, ephemera, syllabi and documents of relevance to her research and pedagogy on gender, sexuality, race and feminist theory. Many of the documents found in this collection are heavily annotated copies of Berlant’s teaching materials for her courses on Afro-American Women Writers, Early American Novel, and Feminism and the Public Sphere. While many of the documents of Berlant’s papers are photocopies of 19th and 20th century texts, the lion share of this collection contains her work on feminism, gender, sexuality, and race from the 1980s to the early 2000s.

Formal title:
Samuel Wyllys papers
Extent:
3.5 Linear feet
Date range:
1638-1757 (bulk 1663-1698)
Abstract:
Annmary Brown Hawkins inherited from her father a collection of colonial documents compiled by Samuel Wyllys, a magistrate of Connecticut from 1654 to 1684, and other members of his family. The collection, covering the period from 1638 to 1757, comprises half of the original collection; the other half (1694-1726) is owned by the Connecticut State Library. These early papers pertain to Indian affairs, colonial wars, civil and criminal cases. The witchcraft trials of 1692 to 1693, as revealed in the testimony of witnesses in the Oyer and Terminer Courts, are of particular interest.
