Artist’s Talk on July 25

Join artist Nikki Brugnoli and curator Jennifer Lillis on Wednesday, July 25, 1:30pm in the Fenwick Main Reading Room for a discussion of Convergence, our current Fenwick Gallery exhibition. For more information, visit http://fenwickgallery.gmu.edu/exhibits/convergence/

Convergence focuses on the intersecting and overlapping lines of artist Brugnoli’s research over the last four years in Virginia and Pennsylvania. Disregarded, post-industrial structures from her past and present as well as widening horizons converge through a series of mixed media drawings, screen prints and photographs. These investigations are engaged meditations on memory and loss, abandonment and reconciliation.

Libraries sponsors 2018 Computers and Writing Conference

The University Libraries is pleased to be a sponsor of the 2018 Computers and Writing Conference, which will take place May 24 – 27 at George Mason University.

Computers and Writing is an annual conference dedicated to the study of the intersections between digital technologies, literacy, and writing. The theme for this year’s conference is Digital Phronesis: Culture/Code/Play. Often described as “practical wisdom,” phronesis represents an enactment of good judgment guided by both learned knowledge and lived experience. Phronesis comes from our histories, our education, and reflections on our experiences.

In addition to the Libraries providing sponsorship and space in Fenwick Library for conference sessions, Jen Stevens (Lead, Arts and Humanities Team) and George Oberle (History Librarian) were members of the planning committee for the conference.
