The VCU Libraries Innovative Media department invites the VCU community to Wednesdays in the Workshop. The heads of the department have selected a variety of workshops to help visitors understand the proper usage of equipment. The equipment and spaces in the Workshop are free and open to all members of the VCU academic community. Stop by each Wednesday for hands-on demonstrations of the proper usage of resources, services and workspaces.
In this talk based on his manuscript, Memoirs of Mass Incarceration: The Rhetoric of Revolutionaries, Witnesses and Survivors, VCU associate professor of English David Coogan tells the story of the rise of mass incarceration in America through the memoirs of those who lived through it: the revolutionaries who sought to change the system, the witnesses who watched it become a place of pure punishment and neglect and the survivors struggling through trauma and addiction in places that know not their struggles.
Tompkins-McCaw Library is proud to host the traveling National Library of Medicine exhibit "For All the People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care" The exhibit draws from a variety of sources to detail the history of Healthcare Reform in the United States.
Students, faculty, staff and health professionals are invited to screen engaging documentaries on health science topics followed by discussions about how the subject matter relates to current work at VCU and impacts global health.
The Friends of VCU Libraries present a luncheon honoring Richmond Times-Dispatch columnist Clare Schapiro, author of the newly published cookbook Stories and Recipes from Clare's Kitchen. The luncheon will feature recipes from her cookbook and conclude with a book sale and signing.
