Historical Context Statement
The Ringenberg Archives & Special Collections of Taylor University makes a variety of historical materials publicly available to the Taylor community, scholarly researchers, and the general public. Some of these materials may include content (e.g., images, negative stereotypes, language) that viewers find objectionable for a variety of reasons. It is important for viewers to consider the time period and historical context in which the materials were created when consulting historical materials.
Resources exist to aid viewers in contextualizing historical materials (e.g., a list of questions to consider when putting sources into historical context from the University of Minnesota).
This academic year is made of two volumes of The Echo.
