Buchanan Fellow Hannah Tsiao shares her Final Project

Vanderbilt University’s first student newspaper, the Vanderbilt Austral, published six years after the University’s founding, reveals an identity struggle between who students were and who they wanted to be. Buchanan Fellow Hannah Tsaio sees the students’ longing for an audience, expressing their desires to be heard by the administration, faculty, and each other.  See Hannah’s curator statement, and discover the ins and out of 1870s student life in the new online exhibit 19th-Century Periodicals: Framing the New American Standard
