    What is Final Fridays?

    Final Fridays provides an informal opportunity to hear a few Quality Speakers™ from EIU speak about their exciting projects and creative accomplishments in a quick and accessible way: 10 minutes maximum for each speaker. We gather informally starting @ 4pm, and after some time to socialize, we enjoy listening our Quality Speakers™. By 5:30 or so, we’ve wrapped up, but folks are invited to stay to continue the conversation.


    Who is speaking this month?

    Robin Murray will try to explain how it’s possible that she’s published six books with academic presses inside a decade. David K. Smith will outline for us the exciting events EIU has in store for the commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the beginnings of the North Atlantic Slave Trade. Grace Wilken will illuminate her collaborative (and award-winning!) project to introduce composting on EIU’s campus.

     

    Who is welcome?

    Anyone curious about EIU. While we love to see EIU’s faculty and administrative types, we especially welcome folks from the community who would just like to get to know what’s happening on EIU’s campus.

    Sponsored by EIU's Faculty Development and Innovation Center and the Center for the Humanities

    On Tuesday, Sept. 3, at 4 p.m. two programs will be launched during an event at Booth Library.

    The EIU community will be invited to share their “six words” as part of The Race Card ProjectTM at Booth Library. The program is sponsored by Making Excellence Inclusive, the Office of Inclusion and Academic Engagement, and the Pine Honors College.

    The nationally acclaimed Race Card Project, which began in 2010, encourages people to condense their observations and experiences about race into one sentence with just six words.

    Patrons are encouraged to share their “six words” on provided comment cards and post them on the wall in the library’s Marvin Foyer from Sept. 3 through Oct. 11. The official kickoff will be at 4 p.m. Sept. 3, in conjunction with EIU’s commemorations of the 400th, a series of events evaluating the impact of slavery in America.

    “For All the People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform,” an exhibit that celebrates the citizen groups that have tried to make quality health care accessible to all, will be on display at Booth Library from Sept. 23 through Nov. 2, 2019.
    The arts and humanities play important roles in political reform movements: authors, artists, musicians, performers, and critics work to raise awareness, inspire empathy, and incite action. U.S. authors from different time periods and different cultural backgrounds have represented experiences related to reproductive health and rights activism since the 1890s, often in response to health care reform. This presentation analyzes several of these works in the context of various legal and social debates. The presentation includes discussion of sexuality, pregnancy, and abortion.
    Jeannie Ludlow is a professor of English and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at EIU. She has worked as a patient advocate/peer counselor at abortion clinics and as an antiracist advocate and trainer. Recent publications include “Graphic Abortion: The Grotesque in Diane Noomin’s 1990s Abortion Comics” in Feminist Formations (Summer 2019) and “Inappropriate/d Generations: Artifactual Pregnancy and Diffracted Choice in Comics Narratives” in Monstrous Women in Comics (forthcoming from University Press of Mississippi).
    The exhibit and all programs are free and open to the public. For more information on the exhibit, visit https://library.eiu.edu/exhibits/forallthepeople/.

    “For All the People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform,” an exhibit that celebrates the citizen groups that have tried to make quality health care accessible to all, will be on display at Booth Library from Sept. 23 through Nov. 2, 2019.
    The HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States has a long history with offerings of important lessons for practitioners and public alike. Building upon the momentum of the 1969 Stonewall Riots, the gay community formed citizen action groups in cities across the nation. Citizen action became especially necessary as the federal response to HIV/AIDS research and policy stalled. Initially, these citizen action groups worked to educate gay men about Hepatitis B and promote research on sexually transmitted diseases. The pathogen that would come to be know as Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) likely circulated for decades before attracting systematic attention. Many citizen action groups began to produce sex-positive, norm-based prevention programs that curtailed infection rates among gay men within the first three years of the epidemic. The passage of the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act opened the next chapter of the American HIV/AIDS story which saw the transition from a nascent, largely reactive national response to a more forward-looking approach.
    Dr. Sheila Simons, professor, Department of Health Promotion

Dr. Simons is a Professor in the Department of Health Promotion where she is the graduate coordinator and teaches Principles of Epidemiology and Epidemiology in Public Health.

    “For All the People: A Century of Citizen Action in Health Care Reform,” an exhibit that celebrates the citizen groups that have tried to make quality health care accessible to all, will be on display at Booth Library from Sept. 23 through Nov. 2, 2019.
    One program part of this exhibit is “Root and Branch: The Search for Healing Among African Americans.” The talk would discuss the history of discrimination in medical access and treatment and how this exclusion led to a number of nontraditional treatments and cures, some of which are still believed to be effective today. The historical introduction should give context to some of the treatments discussed and provide for an understanding regarding distrust of contemporary medicine and the persistence of nontraditional cures today.
    Kevin Anderson, professor, Political Science
    Dr. Anderson (Ph.D. Missouri) teaches courses in American government, political theory and African American politics. Professor Anderson focuses his research on American and African American Political Thought, seeking to understand the tensions between individual liberty, collective good and American political values. His first book Agitations: Ideologies and Strategies in African American Politics (University of Arkansas Press 2010), explores this theme within African American politics. His second book is a co-authored work, State Voting Laws in America: Historical Statutes and Their Modern Implications (Palgrave Pivot 2015) with Professors Michael A. Smith of Emporia State University and Chapman Rackaway of the University of West Georgia. This book explores the history and evolving politics surrounding the right to vote in American politics. Professor Anderson has also published book chapters on media and politics and written a book chapter on working in the 1992 Presidential campaign.
    The exhibit and all programs are free and open to the public. For more information on the exhibit, visit https://library.eiu.edu/exhibits/forallthepeople/.
