    Banned Books Week September 22-27

    Join Randall Library in saying, "Lift Every Voice and READ!" and check out our collection of challenged materials with thought-provoking themes! The exhibit highlights the importance of open access to information.  Accompanying some of the books is a description and reasoning behind the work’s censorship and includes personal statements written by UNCW students.

    Students wrote these statements as part of Michelle Manning’s ENG 382: “Ways of Teaching Literature”. In this course, students performed research on banned books and wrote short descriptions that explain how the books positively impacted their lives.

    The Banned Books Week exhibit is sponsored by The UNCW English Department and Randall Library every September. The display is located on the First Floor of Randall Library at the New & Popular Books section. All items are available for check out.

    About the Wentworth Fellowship

    The Wentworth Fellowship, a gift of Mr. Charles F. Green III, was established in 2001 to enable a select number of students to travel to sites in America and abroad that are associated with literary authors and texts.  Each year, students work with faculty sponsors to submit applications detailing journeys inspired by and connected with a specific text, author, or movement in an effort to explore the relationship of artistic production to geographic space. In the past, Wentworth Fellows have traveled to places as diverse as Beijing, Moscow, Oxford, Berlin, Prince Edward Island, and Providence, Rhode Island.
