Wherein I Am: Highlights from the Aaron Coleman Papers

In 2021 the Washington University Libraries acquired the literary papers of Aaron Coleman, a poet and translator who received his Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in 2015 and Doctor of Philosophy in Comparative Literature in 2021 from Washington University in St. Louis. The Aaron Coleman Papers consist of drafts of poems from his first two books and other materials related to his time at Washington University.

The Wherein I Am digital exhibition is a companion to the onsite exhibition of the same name. Both are curated by PhD Student in Comparative Literature Sarah Maria Medina.
