An exhibition exploring the excitement and power of combining separate elements to make something new, beautiful, and lasting. Drawn from the Betsy Beinecke Shirley Collection of American Children’s Literature, the James Weldon Johnson Memorial Collection of African American Literature, and the Yale Collection of American Literature, “+” considers exemplary works and the archival stories of their making to reveal the creative—and potentially destructive—tensions that are inevitable parts of artistic collaboration.
This fall, the Beinecke Library is home to seven full-semester courses and regularly supports 15 or more class sessions each week, with more than 200 individual class sessions scheduled throughout the semester. These classes range from seminars for first-year students in Yale College to advanced graduate seminars offered by departments and schools including Spanish, English, Directed Studies, Divinity, History of Art, African American Studies, Music, Film, History, American Studies, and Art, among others.
