"Out of the Stacks!” is an exploration of the variety of materials that can be found in Quaker & Special Collections: published and unpublished, visual and textual, old and contemporary. It features a variety of materials, many of which connect historical materials to issues we are confronting in our current world. While some of the topics may be familiar or expected, others showcase lesser-known aspects of Haverford’s collections. Items were selected, researched, and written about mainly by student colleagues in the Libraries during the spring and summer of 2020. In accordance with COVID-19 protocols, Lutnick Library is closed to the public during the fall semester with the exception of public lecture times.

The Contest of the Fruits takes a nineteenth-century Uyghur allegorical poem as the point of departure for investigations of language, politics, religion, humor, resilience, and resistance in a pluralistic world. The poem features the ribald rivalry of thirteen fruits, such as the mulberry, pomegranate, quince, and pear. At the focal point of this exhibition, internationally-renowned art collective Slavs and Tatars have re-interpreted the poem as a Turkic rap battle in their first-ever animated video work. Performative and playful, it is accompanied by new sculptural works also emerging from the syncretic linguistic and ethnographic heritage at the heart of Uyghur culture.
