Fall Athenæum Series: Changes in Children’s Literature

Monday, September 16th, 2013

The Kent Library Athenaeum Series continues with Dr. Debra Porter presenting on Changes in Children’s Literature. Stories have been told for as long as humans have had language. Broad themes such as friendship, love, and conflict remain constant of stories but as the years pass, these themes are treated differently. During this presentation, Dr. Porter will present children’s literature from the past and the present to demonstrate how these themes have remained unchanged but are presented quite differently today. This event will occur at Noon on Wednesday, September 25 in Sadie’s Place on the main level of Kent Library. It is open to all and refreshments will be served.

Fall Athenæum Series: Botanical Illustrations and the Arts & Crafts Movement

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

The Kent Library Athenaeum Series begins at Noon on Wednesday, August 28 with Art Department faculty members Emily Booth and Louise Bodenheimer. Booth and Bodenheimer recently developed a University Studies Transcultural Experience course addressing Botanical Illustration and the Arts and Crafts movement in London. Booth and Bodenheimer approached the course as a cross-discipline, studio-based endeavor and enlisted the input of a number of other faculty and experts both in the pre-travel Spring meetings as well as when traveling in London. This talk will tell the fun, interesting story of how this endeavor unfolded, showcasing not only the experiences of Booth and Bodenheimer but the viewpoints of other faculty who contributed to the course content and the tales of the students who participated in the adventure. Additionally, the handmade journals, on-site field sketches and final, large-scale designs created by the students will be on display in Kent Library adjacent to Sadie’s Place. The event is open to all, and refreshments will be served.
