Gerda Peterich (1906-1974), a German-trained photographer, established a studio in New York City in 1939 and after decades of teaching retired to New Hampshire in 1968. The black and white photographs on view from the permanent collection include tightly structured, often abstract, landscapes and images of architectural ornamentation that echo the spirit of German realist photography of the 1920s and ‘30s.

The English Department and UNH Museum in Dimond Library will host “Conflict Zone: Photojournalism from the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,” from Jan. 26 to March 6.
The exhibition includes images from 30 photojournalists, including the work of three Pulitzer Prize winners. Comprised of photography both large and small, the images will provide a more dramatic and visual representation of the recent wars than can be given from a small computer screen, or quickly glanced on the TV news.

Please join us as chairs and coordinators in the humanities disciplines discuss the "state of the humanities" at UNH.
We will be talking about why these fields matter, how they create citizens ready to live in a diverse modern society, and what our own faculty are seeing in the areas of enrollment, hiring, research, and morale within their departments. What is the future of the humanities, here at UNH and in society? How can we collaborate and work collectively to make that future brighter? What opportunities exist for public engagement?
