Kent Library’s fall Athenaeum Series begins on Wednesday, September 22, 2010, at 12:30 p.m. in Sadie’s Place with Department of Art professor Chris Wubbena’s discussion of a recently completed sculpture installation titled “speaking while listening.” The multimedia art installation explores the complex issues of the Vietnam War from many perspectives including his father’s, a Vietnam veteran.

During the first half of the 20th century, Europe produced two of the most tyrannical regimes in world history – the Nazi and Soviet dictatorships. Both were products of a general crisis that gripped Europe during the years 1914-1945. Together these two dictatorships were responsible for the deaths of over 60 million people. On Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at Noon in Kent Library’s Sadie’s Place, Dr. David Cameron will discuss the nature of the Nazi and Soviet dictatorships. Although it is commonly assumed that Nazism and Communism are polar opposites, Dr. Cameron will argue that the Nazi and Soviet dictatorships had much more in common than is often thought to be the case. The presentation is open to all, and refreshments will be served. For more information, please go to http://library.semo.edu/info/athenaeumspring2010.shtml.
In some academic disciplines, like physics, women still represent a tiny minority of students and faculty members. Other fields, such as history, have come closer to reaching gender balance, but women remain a minority at the rank of full professor. Research in many fields now includes studies that focus on gender and sexuality.
Do women make a difference in the academic world? Does participation by women change the way people behave in academic departments? Do male colleagues treat women as equals? What can young women—or young men—expect when they pursue advanced degrees?
This panel kicks off a series of upcoming events in celebration of Women’s History Month, March 2010.
The event is free and open to all. Refreshments will be served.
