Language of Materials



Anthony Fragola was a professor in the UNCG Media Studies Department until his retirement in 2014. He earned his BA from Columbia University, his MA in Comparative Literature from UNC Chapel Hill, and his Master of Professional Writing from the University of Southern California. He published two books: The Erotic Dream Machine: Interviews with Alain Robbe-Grillet on his Films, co-authored with Roch C. Smith, and a collection of short stories, Feast of the Dead. His films include "Another Corleone: Another Sicily", "Feast of the Dead", "Dream of the Immigrant", and "A Beautiful Memory: A Mother and Her Sons Against the Mafia". Fragola's documentary work focused strongly on anti-mafia resistance in Italy, the Italian immigrant experience, and Italian heritage.

Offensive Language Statement

The UNC Greensboro University Libraries collects, preserves, and makes accessible unique and historical materials for learning and research. The nature of historical materials is such that some material may represent positions, norms, and values that are offensive and objectionable. These materials represent the opinions and actions of their creators. By providing access to these records in our reading room and through our digital collections, we recognize that archives and rare books can play a vital role in holding those creators accountable and in helping us learn from the past.

Our finding aids and other collection descriptions may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context. That said, we recognize that we may not always make the right decision and welcome feedback from all sources so we can learn and adjust our practices. Please contact us at if you encounter problematic language in our finding aids or other collection description. We will review the language and, as appropriate, update it in a way that balances preservation of the original context with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
