Siomon Fraser Universry is please to have a special collection of rare books on display on the third floor of the W.A.C. Bennett Library.
“This exhibit examines representations of North American Indigenous women in the exploration narratives of three European explorers: James Cook, George Vancouver, and Samuel Hearne. Cook and Vancouver travelled up the North West coast of North America, encountering Indigenous populations throughout their travels in 1778 and 1792, while Samuel Hearne, who worked for the Hudson’s Bay Company, went on extended expeditions near Hudson’s Bay with Indigenous guides in 1771.”

There is also another exhibit on campus – showing the contact between social classes in the romantic era of England. “The Lyrical Ballads, originally published in 1798, was the product of the labours of William Wordsworth (1770-1850) and Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834).”
This exhibit is running until August 31, 2017.
