Upcoming Diversity Opportunities Dec. 1st-Dec.7th

The Diversity and Inclusion Committee will send out upcoming opportunities every week we think will be of interest. We hope that you will help us continue to build a library culture of diversity and inclusion. At the end of each month, we will have an open forum for those who are interested in debriefing about the workshops/sessions/trainings you attended.

Imposter Syndrome: What is it? How do we Deal with it?
Thursday Dec. 6th, 10:30-11:15 am
Lafferre Hall W1005 Ketchum Auditorium

This interactive session will explore how biases can be internalized in the form of stereotype threat and imposter syndrome. Participants will discuss what these terms mean, the negative impact that they can have, strategies to overcome them within ourselves and ways to avoid triggering them in others. Mara Inge will be attending this. Email her if you want to join her!

Happy Retirement to Rich Rexroat

Rich Rexroat started at the Health Sciences Library in 1979. That year:

  • Jimmy Carter was president
  • The Sahara Desert experienced snow for 30 minutes
  • Superman the Movie was released
  • The average cost of a medical journal was about $40
  • And this is what the Medical Library looked like, where Rich started his career as a librarian.

 

 

Now, almost 40 years later, he’s decided it’s time to retire, and we wish him well in his future endeavors!

We have no campus events to recommend this week, but there is no shortage of cultural enrichment to be had, related to many aspects of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Check out What’s Cooking?, viewable online on tubitv.com, if you want to see some family drama in four very different yet interrelated American families.

Want to see Thanksgiving celebrations in historical context in U.S. history, including colonial-era instructions on stuffing and roasting turkey? Your Library of Congress has quite a bit.

Ever thought about how Native Americans today feel about Thanksgiving? See this writeup from the National Museum of the American Indian.  Want to find out about the role the late-fall/winter staple wild rice’s cultural and historical significance for the Ojibwe people? Look at some of the Youtube videos on “Manoomin,” the Ojibwe name for wild rice, like this short documentary.

And for fun and exciting dinner conversation, how about this? https://www.history.com/news/thanksgiving-history-trivia-facts
