Her areas of focus are women’s history and book arts, but she has also had a shadow life as a performance artist and the lead singer in a post-punk cabaret band. She was instrumental in building substantial artists’ book collections at Duke University’s Sallie Bingham Center for Women and Culture at Duke (where she was the first Director), at UCLA Special Collections, and now at the University of Miami.

Sarah Michelle Rupert, Director
