TLIT 458 - The Modern Novel - Nicole Blair: What does it mean to curate?

This course guide is designed for students in Nicole Blair's Spring 2019 class on The Modern Novel!

What does curation mean?

Check out this article by a librarian from the Library of Congress on what curation means.... Here is an excerpt:

I came to understand that someone identified a context or message that one wanted to present, and brought together a set of objects that represented a place or time or context, or provided examples to illustrate a point. The exhibition wall texts and labels and catalog and web site are carefully crafted to contextualize the items so they do not appear to be a random selection.
