Introduction: Brief Overview
Buildings are integrally tied to the identity and the happenings of a campus community. They are the sites of meaningful rituals, parodic play, and scholastic inquiry. The goal of this exhibit is to explore the tension between access to a scholarly identity for women and the social and financial cost of that access. In the exhibit, the buildings of Bryn Mawr serve as a historic lens, as well as characters in their own right.
