The Wittliff Collections offer a dynamic archival, exhibition, programming, and research environment designed to further the cultural legacy of our region’s literary and photographic arts, and foster “the spirit of place” in the wider world. The Southwestern Writers Collection preserves and exhibits the literary papers and artifacts of principal writers, filmmakers, and musicians of the Southwest. The Southwestern & Mexican Photography Collection is one of the world’s foremost institutions devoted to collecting the photographic arts of Mexico and the Southwestern United States. Both collections have book series published by the University of Texas Press.

Dr. Coleman is interested in reviewing work taken southwestern U.S. and Mexico, with a particular interest in work that emphasizes the human element. The Wittliff only exhibits and publishes works from its permanent collection.
