Comic Reflections on Academic Work

This month's header illustrates a different perspective of the library than our typical sunset-on-the-bluff images capture.

 

In these comics, students are beginning to reflect on the process of writing a "literature review," a requirement for a course Professor Dean Scheibel teaches called "Introduction to Research in Communication Studies." 


 
Research is a process, and by having students reflect on the fears, errors, or mistakes made during that process, we hope that they will experience new insights and discoveries. (One of which is that no student at LMU has to go through this process alone - you have librarians available to help you!) 


 
You can experience the full array of CMST 204 student reflections on the research process, (Including those of Justine Solan, featured above) in an exhibit on display in the Information Commons through December 12. 

11/4: Faculty Pub Night with Brian Treanor, author of Emplotting Virtue

The third Pub Night of Fall 2014 features Brian Treanor, Professor of Philosophy, Daum Professor, and Director of Environmental Studies.

Character and ethical formation, Treanor argues, are intimately tied to our relationship with the narratives through which we view the human place in the natural world. By reframing environmental questions in terms of individual, social, and environmental narratives about flourishing, Emplotting Virtue offers a powerful vision of how we might remake our character so as to live more happily, more sustainably, and more virtuously in a diverse, beautiful, wondrous, and fragile world.

 

Faculty Pub Nights are not just for faculty! All LMU faculty, students, staff, and members of the community are welcome to attend.

 

Learn more, and RSVP here.
New Exhibit: Sea Song Journey

From November 10 through January 30, student artwork inspired by Moby-Dick will be on display throughout the library. 

 

The students enrolled in Professor Jane Brucker's course Visualizing Literature (co-taught with Digital Scholarship Librarian Melanie Hubbard) are collaboratively creating and co-curating this exhibition of their work. 

 

All are invited to an opening reception for Sea Song Journey on Thursday November 20. 

 

RSVP now!
