University Libraries: Teach In

The University Libraries along with Prof. Mark Pedelty are holding a Teach In, a performance and discussion about environmental and protest music as part of social movements. This event is free, open to everyone and will be held in 280 Ferguson Hall on April 17th 4:00-5:00pm.

This Spring we have a very special exhibit going on in both Wilson Library (near the GOV PUB collections on the basement level) and in the Ferguson Hall Music Library on Protest Music. This is the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, escalating war in Vietnam, and growing unrest for change for women, American Indians, Chicano/a and others. Music has played a major role in this and we are happy to celebrate this in the Libraries.
One very special upcoming event is a Teach In - those of us old enough to remember these know how powerful and important these can be - being led by Mark Pedelty and his colleagues and students from his COMM 1901 class. We want this to be a smashing success! And, you can help!
Teach in: (noun) A practical, participatory learning event, oriented toward action. Generally includes presentations, discussion, & questions; involvement from the audience is essential to success.
Join faculty and student musicians as well as the students of COMM 1901: Environmental Communication and Performance as they present performances and lead a discussion about environmental and protest music as part of social movements.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 17th 4:00--5:00 p.m.
WHERE: 280 Ferguson Hall (West Bank)

Details are below. We think this will be a wonderful event - and hopefully the first of similar activities and collaborations between the Libraries and our campus community!
