Picturing Our Library: Watercolors by SJSU Art Students (Gallery Shows)
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library and San José State University Department of Art and Art History are honored to present Picturing Our Library: Watercolors by SJSU Art Students, an exhibition in celebration of the library’s 10th anniversary. The exhibit was displayed in the library from September 3-30, 2013.
Rendered by San José State University art students under the instruction of Professor Gale Antokal, a collection of eighteen watercolors captures the remarkable vantage points of interior and exterior landscapes of the King Library. Our library is a center for knowledge, a symbol of innovation, a place of reflection, and it is a playground for the curious and imaginative. Highlighting the multiplicity our library, each watercolor presents our library as a monumental feat of architecture, intellectual resources, and cumulative experiences from our community. Our library gives its patrons as much as we give it, and the heart of our library is the bond we have chosen to cherish and develop over the past 10 years. Our library is a hub of possibility—whether inside it, outside it, or beyond it—our library is always with us.
Secrecy and Society (School of Information)
Call for Papers / Issue 2
This call for papers is a response to resurgent political trends, especially in the wake of recent world events and social movements. In Issue 2 of Secrecy and Society, we address the subject of secrecy and authoritarianism, including how ideology and popular beliefs are constituted through knowledge claims such as "alternative facts," disinformation, disingenuous rhetoric, “populist conspiracy theory,” "post-truth," and propaganda.
We welcome papers that propose novel theories and methods that conceptualize these subjects. The inspiration for this special section is Richard Hofstadter’s paranoid style in politics, history as conspiracy, and ideas on anti-intellectualism. We encourage scholars, including doctoral students, from around the globe to submit their work.
In addition to papers on the theme of secrecy and authoritarianism, submissions that address any aspect of secrecy and society will be considered.We also have a list of books for review.
Deadline for abstracts: March 20, 2017
Deadline for submissions: June 15, 2017
Publication of issue: July, 2017
