Veil(s): An Extraordinary Photographic Experience

The William H. Hannon Library is honored to host the only West Coast venue for this beautiful, challenging photographic exhibit exploring perceptions of the veil from the 19th century to the present, and chronicling veiled women from all walks of life: Christian, Muslim, and Jewish. Veil(s) is on display in the library's level 3 atrium through March 25.

 

Veils  

On March 14 at 6 p.m., all are invited to a panel discussion featuring LMU faculty Feryal Cherif (Political Science), Amir Hussain (Theological Studies), Nancy Jabbra (Women's Studies), and Rana Sharif (American Cultures). The talk, titled "Veil(s): Perception(s) and Misperception(s)" will be followed by a reception. Space is limited. Click here for more information and to RSVP. 

 

Veil(s) is a project of Lebanese American University's (LAU) Institute for Women's Studies in the Arab World. The exhibit is presented by the Southern California Alumni/ae Chapter of LAU in partnership with the LMU Department of Women's Studies and the William H. Hannon Library.

Undergraduate Library Research Award

This spring we are delighted to host the sixth annual Undergraduate Library Research Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize and reward LMU undergraduate students whose research makes expert and creative use of the services, resources, and collections of the William H. Hannon Library to produce a scholarly or creative work. Original research projects or creative works created between January 2011 and the application deadline are eligible. 

 

For 2012, a prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the first place undergraduate project, and $450 each to two honorable mentions. 

 

The deadline for faculty nominations and applications is April 6. Click here to learn more about the award, and to see past winners' work. 

Image of the Month: Study Break

This month's image comes from Steven Wall '13, who posted it on Twitter. We stumbled across it because it was tagged at the library, and liked it so much that we asked Steven for permission to share it here.
