Book Talk: Latina Agency Through Narration in Education: Speaking Up on Erasure, Identity, and Schooling, with Carmen Martinez-Roldan and Contributors, Thursday, 4/22, 5-6:30pm

Please JOIN us for a virtual panel book talk with Dr. Carmen M. Martínez-Roldán and contributors to the recent publication, Latina Agency Through Narration in Education: Speaking Up on Erasure, Identity, and Schooling (New York: Routledge, 2021).

"Drawing on critical and sociocultural frameworks, this volume presents narrative studies by or about Latinas in which they speak up about issues of identity and education. Using narratives, self-identification stories, and testimonios as theory, methodology, and advocacy, this volume brings together a wide range of Latinx perspectives on education identity, bilingualism, and belonging. The narratives illustrate the various ways erasure and human agency shape the lives and identities of Latinas in the United States from primary school to higher education and beyond, in their schools and communities. Contributors explore how schools and educational institutions can support student agency by adopting a transformative activist stance through curricula, learning contexts, and policies. Chapters contain implications for teaching and come together to showcase the importance of explicit activist efforts to combat erasure and engage in transformative and emancipatory education."

--Publisher's description

A significant volume in the Language, Culture, and Teaching Series, Latina Agency through Narration in Education is dedicated to" [a]ll Latina women who have fought erasure, whether through small or big agentive and activist efforts; for those who have created networks of solidarity to lift up others and create more equitable learning contexts for our children" -- including the late TC Professor Emerita Maria Torres Guzman," whose social imagination had no limits."

Artivism: The Power of Art for Social Transformation is energized by the recently published book, Illuminations of Social Imagination: Learning From Maxine Greene, (Dio Press, 2019), edited by Courtney Weida, Dolapo Adeniji-Neill, and Carolina Cambronero-Varela.

"The concept for this book is inspired by the late Maxine Greene (2000), who described her enduring philosophical focus and legacy of social imagination as “the capacity to invent visions of what should be and what might be in our deficient society, on the streets where we live, in our schools” (p. 5). The purpose of this volume is to examine and illuminate the roles of community organizers and educators who are changing lives through public art and community arts projects. This research originally emerged from a well-attended 2018 conference presentation and exhibition at Teachers College, Columbia University, engaging with the local and international community of arts education and arts administration."

Guest Talk: The Power of Art: Creativity and Academics, with Argie Agelarakis, Monday, 4/5, 4-5pm

In teaching the arts to students regardless of their fields of study, art becomes the means by which to explore and better understand other cultures and social justice movements, injustice, the key to paying attention to detail, and the opportunity to explore the many qualities the arts possess. Art, a universal language and a human right, promotes awareness, may address and explore cultural, social, and political concerns and differences, and finally, allows for empathy, and the hope to create “global ambassadors” for change.

Argie Moutafis-Agelarakis, painter and illustrator, earned her BFA at The School of Visual Arts, her MA at Adelphi University, and is a Part-Time Faculty member at both Universities. Her courses explore her passion for art; drawing from her experience as a published illustrator in archaeology, anthropology, and art. She has taught scientific illustration, food-culture-and-art and ethnobotany. She teaches benefits of art therapy, art behind bars, art as social justice/activism, and the relationship of art and science. Her paintings, abstract or surreal, are influenced by her technical illustrations, yet break free from them, finding beauty in the purest forms in our natural environment, aiming to convey a rhythm or harmony of color, form, and hope. Her passion for art and believing in the value of incorporating the arts in education to all individuals/communities has brought her to a position on the Programming Committee at both the Center for the Women of New York and the Hellenic Women’s Alliance.

Guest Talk: The Clothesline Project, with Stephanie Lake, Thursday, 4/22, 3-5pm

In 1990, visual artist Rachel Carey-Harper, moved by the power of the AIDS quilt, presented the concept of using shirts - hanging on a clothesline - as the vehicle for raising awareness about violence against women. The concept was simple - let each woman tell her story in her own unique way, using words and/or artwork to decorate her shirt. Once finished, she would then hang her shirt on the clothesline. This very action serves many purposes. It acts as an educational tool for those who come to view the Clothesline; it becomes a healing tool for anyone who makes a shirt ( by hanging the shirt on the line, survivors, friends and family can literally turn their back on some of that pain of their experience and walk away); finally, it allows those who are still suffering in silence to understand that they are not alone. Over the past 15 years, Adelphi's Criminal Justice Club has hosted its own Clothesline, allowing students, faculty, staff and the community the opportunity to make t-shirts and to view the hundreds of t-shirts we've accumulated over the years.

Stephanie Lake is the Director of the Criminal Justice Program and has been a faculty member in the Department of Sociology at Adelphi University since 2002. Professor Lake earned her doctorate at the University of Virginia after researching the causes and consequences of race and gender disparities in felony sentencing. As a faculty member at Adelphi, Professor Lake has served as an advisor to many student organizations on campus and runs the prolific Criminal Justice Club on campus. The CJ Club hosts 3-5 events per semester, many involving the arts as a way for students to challenge injustice in the criminal justice system and inequity in the global system more generally. Past examples have included an annual Clothesline Project, participation in Chalk Up and the Fall Arts Festival, Fair Trade Fashion Shows, hosting Sundown Town workshops, hosting the Yes Men and participating in flash mobs to bring attention to the 25th Anniversary of the worst industrial disaster in history (Bhopal), hosting the director and producer of the documentary, "Every Mother's Son", participation in Die Ins and collaborations with just about every other program, club and organization on campus.

Guest Talk: Intervention: Indigo - Protest, Mutual Aid and Reciprocity, with Laura Anderson Barbata, Monday, 4/26, 5:30-6:30pm

Intervention: Indigo, is a project that combines procession, performance, dance, music, textile arts, costuming, ritual, improvised interactions with the audience, and protest.

Presented in Brooklyn in 2015 and in Mexico City in 2020. The work is a call to action to serve and protect—and a protest in response to the violence and murder at the hands of the police of Black people living in this country and all over the world. The point of departure is the color indigo, a dye that is used around the globe and associated with protection, wisdom, and royalty. At the onset of the pandemic, my work moved from reclaiming the metaphorics and symbolism of protection implicit in the color indigo, to literally making masks to serve and protect the people most affected by the pandemic: our QTBIPOC communities, who responded with powerful examples of reciprocity. This talk will focus on how an artistic intervention evolved into a practice of mutual aid.

Born in Mexico City, Laura Anderson Barbata is a transdisciplinary artist currently based in Brooklyn and Mexico City. Since 1992, she has initiated long-term projects and collaborations in the Venezuelan Amazon, Trinidad and Tobago, Mexico, Norway, and the United States that address issues of social justice and the environment. Her work often combines performance, procession, dance, music, textile arts, costuming, papermaking, zines, and protest.

Recipient of Anonymous Was a Woman Award, and grants from FONCA Mexico. Her work is in various private and public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; el Museo de Arte Moderno, México D.F.; and Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary TBA21-Academy.

Staff Picks: Myth and Culture

"What is the role of myth in culture? For starters, we must understand the definition of these two terms. Webster defines myth as a usually traditional story of ostensibly historical events that serves to unfold part of the world view of a people or explain a practice, belief, or natural phenomenon. Culture is defined as the social behavior and norms found in human societies, as well as the knowledge, beliefs, arts, laws, customs, capabilities, and habits of the individuals in these groups.

James Feibleman wrote, “ A myth is a religion in which no one any longer believes”. As superstitions evolve into religions, knowledge, and science come in to overturn those beliefs. So, it is common today to refer to earlier religious beliefs as myths. However, myths do not refer only to religious beliefs, as in the case of the classic Greek tales of the Olympian gods. There are civic myths, political myths, economic myths, and social myths.

Every culture has its myths. They are told and taught repeatedly, from one generation to another, as part of the process of inculcating a child into that culture. These myths often encompass desirable characteristics in a culture such as strength, courage, and kindness, and dispel nondesirable ones such as greed, anger, and selfishness. 

This curated list of books takes a look at cultures across the globe and how their myths have shaped and defined their ways of life both in the past and twenty-first century. Political opinions, economic strategies, desired physical qualities, and sociocultural norms all have roots in myths."

-- Annette Mims, Library Associate

Everett Cafe: Digital Extremism, mid-March through April

Our next Everett Cafe book display explores digital extremism, both violent and nonviolent forms of political expression facilitated through use of digital medium, often social media. While gaming and dating sites may be used to encourage individuals -- youth among them -- to meet up, adopt extreme views, and engage in violent activity, the Internet serves to accelerate the process by enabling communication without physical contact. In an unsettled time marked by the effects of global pandemic, social distancing, loss of employment, and racial injustices, individuals may be swept into extreme or radical ways of thinking and acting, only as technology companies continue to reap benefits.

In the wake of January's unprecedented attack on our nation's capital, a riot that disrupted Congress from formalizing the 2020 presidential election results, we feature titles that address the topic of digital extremism from different angles. From how social media shapes influence, to the very concept of radical technologies, we seek to encourage educational awareness and deeper conversation about the darkening forces of cyberspace.

At the Everett News Cafe, you'll find a new book collection every few weeks that relates to current affairs, education, or learning environments.

Online Exhibit: Warping the Future

Warping the Future: How Craft Led To the Digital World As We Know It, is an interactive exhibition that explores the history of crafting and the history of computing. It is presented in three stations: "Humans as Machines" exploring the history of weaving by interacting with a variety of looms, including the backstrap loom, warp-weighted loom, tapestry loom, floor loom, and Jacquard loom; visitors will learn about the origin of weaving, how ancient societies used them and which materials they weaved with. "Humans Automating Machines" delves into the "punch card way" as the core intersection between programmed computers and looms; visitors are exposed to the origins of programming by learning the logic behind the punch cards. In "Machines as Humans", viewers can search for curated collection of projects that illustrate more contemporary connections between ancient and new technologies.
