The Suellen Zima Papers, a collection of letters and photographs of an English teacher who taught at Nanjing University, China, are now available at the Hoover Institution Archives. The bulk of the collection consists of correspondence, arranged chronologically, between Zima and her students of the so-called Tiananmen Generation. The letters, dated 1989–2013, provide details of students’ lives during China’s transition to a market-oriented economy.

Stanford Students Explore the "Dark Side of Rhetoric" at the Hoover Archives

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

The Hoover Institution Library & Archives at Stanford is a wonderful place to study 20th–century war and Revolution. A recent Program in Writing & Rhetoric course, Propaganda: The Dark Side of Rhetoric, brought Stanford students to Hoover to examine its rich collections and to select items for further study. Of the many essays submitted for the course, here are three stellar examples that provide excellent analyses of the arguments, logical and illogical, verbal and visual, that one finds in propaganda. They also provide a detailed and intimate look at just a few of the millions of items contained in Hoover's stacks.
