Gabaccia, Hawley in the News

Director Donna Gabaccia and Program Director Haven Hawley contributed to features on Minnesota Public Radio and in the Washington Post recently.

Prof. Gabaccia advised on historical and current aspects of intermarriage among immigrants to the United States. The resulting feature looks specifically at intermarriage among Somali immigrants, especially in the Twin Cities.

Dr. Haven Hawley spent the week of July 25 as a printer in residence at Rare Book School, a program held annually at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. The Washington Post included photos of her work in print and online features.

See "Summer camp for bibliophiles" for photos of her demonstration of printing on a replica (ca. 1800) Franklin Common Press.
