Description: The Radical Literature Collection, housed in UMBC’s Special Collections, contains a variety of documents concerning various social and political movements and organizations, ranging from anarchism to Indigenous rights to global politics. Within the almost 1,000 items in the collection, researchers can browse flyers, illustrated pamphlets, cartoons, published speeches, and various other publications from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Join Lindsey Loeper and Susan Graham from Special Collections along with CoLab project participants Kate Drabinski, Avnee Sharma, and Gabe Brunal to learn more about the collection, how it came to be at UMBC, and how researchers can use it to study the past--and the future.
