12/1: Faculty Pub Night With Kevin McDonald

The fourth and final Faculty Pub Night of Fall 2015 features Kevin P. McDonald, Assistant Professor of Colonial America & Atlantic World History. Professor McDonald will discuss his recent publication, Pirates, Merchants, Settlers, and Slaves: Colonial America and the Indo-Atlantic World.

Enlivened by stories of Indo-Atlantic sailors and cargoes that included textiles, spices, jewels and precious metals, chinaware, alcohol, and drugs, this book links previously isolated themes of piracy, colonialism, slavery, transoceanic networks, and cross-cultural interactions and extends the boundaries of traditional Atlantic, national, world, and colonial histories.

Meet Our New Outreach and Communications Librarian!
 
We are delighted to welcome John Jackson, our new Outreach and Communications Librarian, to the William H. Hannon Library staff!
 
We asked John to tell us a little bit about himself:
 
Q: What's the last good book you read?
 
I just finished reading Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. I've read many post-apocalyptic novels over the last few months (I was going through a phase) and this is by far the most frightening. It shows in graphic detail the slow degradation of modern society once the electricity and gas runs out. As soon as I finished the book, my first inclination was to build a survival shelter!
 
Q:  Tell us one surprising thing about you.
 
I have an unapologetic love of shoes and bow ties. My father always wore a suit to the office and I guess the apple didn't fall too far from the tree. My friends know that my collections of shoes and bow ties far outnumber anything else that I own. Except for books. My home is essentially a warehouse for books that my family and I help to maintain and curate. Books and bow ties: that about sums me up!
