We are pleased to present the debut exhibit of Phil Hall’s small constructions, a selection of recent tinkerings. The exhibit will be on display in the Harriet Irving Library (1st floor) from December 1st to January 1st.

Phil Hall, who is Writer-in Residence at UNB, is an award-winner poet with many books to his credit, most recently: Guthrie Clothing: The Poetry of Phil Hall — a Selected Collage (2015), and Conjugation (2016). He is also a visual artist, working in collage, and says that a “cut & paste” method informs his poetry as well.

Halloween Celebration of Frankenstein


[ Wednesday, October 31, 2018,  Milham Room, Harriet Irving Library ]

   CELEBRATION OF FRANKENSTEIN  [ 1:00pm – 2:30pm ]

Join us for a Halloween celebration of Frankenstein and the public humanities! Project leaders Sue Sinclair & Elizabeth Effinger (UNB, Department of English) along with UNB student participants and some project partners will be at the Harriet Irving Library to celebrate a special SSHRC-funded exhibition and discuss the project: what it is, why it is, who’s involved, and what ideas and relationships have emerged from the process.

On the bicentennial of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, this exhibition showcases the result of an artistic collaboration that brings together university students and members of the Walls to Bridges Collective, a group of incarcerated and non-incarcerated women dedicated to creating collaborative and innovative learning communities within correctional settings. Participants each “erased” several pages of the novel, strategically blotting out words to create a new literary work of art: an “erasure,” a long poem piggybacking on Shelley’s original work.

The novel has been reassembled into a rich and crinkly book, which will be on display. Visitors will also see blown-up images of some of the individual pages and statements from participants and witness the unveiling of the project’s newest “hideous progeny” created in partnership with UNB’s MakerSpace.
