Women’s History Month Colloquium 2021: A virtual memory book

Cunningham Memorial Library’s Events Area is usually the venue for the annual Women’s History Month Colloquium (from Gender Studies and other sponsors)  and the Library shares photos of those events. With this year’s virtual Colloquium, Marsha Miller, Research and Instruction Librarian and member of the Library’s Marketing team, was able to attend all but one of the events and did screen-grabs to represent and record the event for posterity. Those, along with some of the graphic announcements, are shared here. Don’t forget to check out the 4 blog entries on Women and American Health Policy.

July 15: Come to webcast celebrating Apollo 11 50th Anniversary

Celebrate Humanity’s First Step Onto Another World

 Many media events are scheduled this week to commemorate the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. On July 15, from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. the Library will host a Live Webcast Event from the American Museum of Natural History and STAR Library Network. Watch the 4pm – 5pm webcast from our 3 screens in the Library Events Area (light refreshments), then linger to chat (event ends at 6pm). Our guides will help answer these questions: What was the sequence of this incredible mission? Where on the Moon did they land? And how did they return safely to Earth?

 It is hard to overstate the impact of Apollo 11’s first landing on the Moon.  It was humanity’s first step onto another world, an exciting climax to the space race, and the world’s largest rocket at the time.  It was a classic story of American ingenuity — leaving our home planet a mere one hundred years after connecting the transcontinental railroad, and only sixty-six years after the Wright Brothers’ first powered flight.

 The featured presenter is Dr. Carter Emmart, Director of Astrovisualization at  the American Museum of Natural History, where he directs  the award winning space show productions based in data  visualization that play in the Hayden Planetarium, and  around the world.  Since 1998 he has overseen the development of the interactive Digital Universe 3D Atlas. Starting in 2002, he began a collaboration with Sweden’s Linkoping  University hosting a series of masters thesis projects that  lead to the NASA supported freely available OpenSpace  software at openspaceproject.com. Carter’s career began as  a space artist, with an academic background in astronomy  and geophysics, and comes from a family tradition in the arts.
