Documents Demonstrating Resistance
Resistance often is a reaction to genuine or perceived oppression. Keeping that in mind, what in your collection demonstrates actions, philosophies, lifestyles, or other forms of resistance? What documents would help readers in the general public understand what people were resisting? Please use the form below to describe the documents. Documents can be manuscript, archival, or printed, and can be a single document or a set of documents.

Please use the form as many times as you want to enter different sets of materials. Please fill out as many areas of the form as you can; however, if you cannot answer all the questions, we would prefer to know about potential materials of interest even without complete information.
