Facing Our Truth: Short Plays on Trayvon, Race and Privilege

Following the murder of Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of George Zimmerman, The New Black Fest commissioned a group of playwrights to write ten-minute plays reflecting on the tragedy. Facing Our Truth features works from playwrights Dominque Morisseau, Winter Miller, Dan O'Brien and Quetzal Flores, Marcus Gardley, Mona Mansour and Tala Manassah, and A. Rey Pamatmat. Admission is free with limited seating. Please arrive 30 to 45 minutes early for guaranteed admission.

L&L Shares: Jeffrey S. Copeland's "I'm Published! Now What?"

Jeffrey S. Copeland will discuss I'm Published! Now What? as part of the L&L Shares series. Those who are currently writing or have already published a book must face one of the biggest challenges in publishing: creating successful book events, readings and promotions. Although getting published is a wonderful milestone, it is only the first step at the beginning of a long journey. Without an author’s careful preparation and dedication to promoting the book--to building a readership--a book can languish on the shelves. 


The Culture Wars: The New Left and the Rise of the Neoconservatives in America

Andrew Hartman, associate professor of history at Illinois State University, will present "The Culture Wars: The New Left and the Rise of the Neoconservatives in America." Hartman will discuss how the radical political mobilizations of the 1960s gave rise to a group of reactionaries who came to be called "neoconservatives."  Contact Jerry Soneson at or 273-6221 for more information.

Roundtable: community engagement & service learning

Languages & Literatures faculty will host a roundtable discussion on community engagement and service learning. How can the work of the university expand beyond the boundaries of campus? Faculty members Cheri Roberts, Elizabeth Zwanziger, Jenny Cooley, Elise DuBord and Adrienne Lamberti will share their community engagement and service learning experiences. Bring your own ideas to share.
