Upcoming Museum Exhibit

Posted January 20, 2015

Conflict Zone: Photojournalism from the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan

January 26 - March 6, 2015 University Museum, Dimond Library, Level 1

The University Museum, with funding from the UNH English Department, will host an exhibit and related programs entitled Conflict Zone: Photojournalism from the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a collection of images from the front lines and the post-war home front, captured by combat photographers and journalists, both military and civilian.

Conflict Zone was established in 2010 to honor Joao Silva, a New York Times photojournalist who lost both legs to a landmine in Afghanistan. Chris Hondros, Joao’s colleague and a Conflict Zone featured photographer, was killed in Libya in 2011. Conflict Zone is now dedicated to him.

A formal opening is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 5th at 5:00 PM, and will include an artist’s walkthrough by Nathan Webster, a Lecturer of English at UNH whose photography is part of the exhibition. Webster reported from Iraq as a freelance photojournalist from 2007-09. In addition to his Conflict Zone work, other examples of his photography will be displayed.

The exhibit will also include a reading and discussion with Elliot Ackerman, author of the upcoming novel Green on Blue. Ackerman has written for The New Yorker and Daily Beast and is a Marine veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. Ackerman’s reading will take place Thursday, Feb. 26th at 5:00 PM at the UNH Memorial Union Building, Theater II.

Learn more at ConflictZone.org and ElliotAckerman.com.

Changes to Milne Special Collections and Archives Hours

Posted January 20, 2015

As the Milne Special Collections and Archives unit reorganizes and seeks to hire new staff, there will be some changes to our reference desk hours.

Starting Tuesday, January 20th, reading room hours for the spring semester will be:

  • Monday: 12-4pm
  • Tuesday: 12-8pm
  • Wednesday: 12-4pm
  • Thursday: 12-4pm
  • Friday: 12-4pm

Milne Special Collections and Archives will continue to open by appointment for those who are unable to make regular reading room hours.

Like most Special Collections and Archives, we are closed on the weekends.

These changes are in response to reduced staff, a growing backlog, an increase in remote reference, and a shift in photo/scanning requests stemming the closure of Photo Services last spring. In addition, our statistics show that two-thirds of our face-to-face research occurs after noon.

As a group, we strive to provide the best possible public service, in person and remote, as possible. We are hoping that with your help and understanding we can make this solution work as well as possible until we are fully staffed.

If you have questions, or wish to make an appointment, please contact Contact Special Collections, Archives, and Museum staff.
