Year of Oceania Presentations this Thursday in the Library!
Please come out to the library on Thursday, October 28th, to hear some informative presentations on the Year of Oceania from two of Reinhardt's own! From 2pm to 2:45, Dr. Theresa Ast will present "The Island of the Colorblind." (Can you imagine what it would be like to live in a society in which everyone was literally colorblind since birth? How would that affect the way you perceived things and spoke about the things you saw and experienced?) Then from 3pm to 3:45, Professor John Yelvington will speak on the liberation of the Philippines in World War II.
As always, remember our ongoing essay contest! Just read any Year of Oceania book, see any Year of Oceania movie, or attend any Year of Oceania event--for example, this one! Then write a brief review (two paragraphs are sufficient, and send it to Stephanie Olsen at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winning essay each month wins a "Year Of" t-shirt!
