Lauren Paljusaj (English), along with Anne Savage and Susanna Newbury (both Art) wrote an essay that was published in Nevada Humanities' inaugural Double Down post on distance — part of its COVID-response series on human connection. The essay considers how to interpret photographs as meaningful points of time-lapsed contact. Using UNLV Special Collections & Archives photographs, students explored how tangible, historical artifacts inform our sense of community in the present day. Their exhibition, "Intimate Nevada," will be on view at Special Collections at some point in the physically present future. Paljusaj and Savage are undergraduates.
