The Cultural History of the Smile

We’re excited to launch a new digital exhibit as part of Literature and the Face.

In 2021 we collaborated with two PhD candidates in the Faculty of Arts to build a digital exhibition titled Bittersweet: A Cultural History of the Smile.

In the University of Melbourne Digital Studio Internships Program, Catherine Gay and Xingcheng Wang worked with Dr Tyne Sumner to create an interactive digital humanities project that tells the literary, artistic, and cultural history of the smile.

You can take a look at their incredible work here!
