    BrowZine works by organizing the articles found in Open Access and subscription databases, uniting them into complete journals, then arranging these journals on a common newsstand. The result is an easy and familiar way to browse, read and monitor scholarly journals across the disciplines on the web with Browzine Web or on your iPad, Kindle Fire HD or newer, or other Android tablet with the Browzine app! In this session we will introduce you to Browzine Web, and install the Browzine app on your mobile device, login, and show users how to search for and organize journals of interest. Additionally we will cover downloading and emailing of articles, including adding articles to Zotero.

    In this talk, Dr. Hannah Weiss Muller discusses the relevance, resilience, and significance of the traditional bond between subject and sovereign in the roughly thirty-year period after 1763. She explores why subject status was used and leveraged in the British Empire and argues that the central relationship between monarch and subject proved instrumental to governing an expanding empire during a period more typically known as the Age of Revolution. Dr. Hannah Weiss Muller is Assistant Professor of History at Brandeis University, and a historian of Britain and the British Empire with particular interests in the long eighteenth century and the intersections of law, monarchy, identity, and subjecthood. Her book, Subjects and Sovereigns: Bonds of Belonging in the Eighteenth Century British Empire, is under contract with Oxford University Press. It argues that subject status served as an organizing and contested principle of the eighteenth century, and that the bond between monarch and subjects was integral to the coherence of the British Empire.

    John B. King is a lifelong servant in the field of education. Before his tenure as the 10th Secretary of Education under the Obama Administration, succeeding Arne Duncan, King served as a social studies teacher, principal, and charter school operator. In his current role, King serves as the president of the advocacy group, The Education Trust. Throughout his career, King has fought to make education more equitable by focusing on the huge disparities in the system including: the achievement gap, opportunities for low income students, students of color, and for english learners, and the disparate discipline practices in schools. As someone who matriculated through the public education system, King often says that school saved his life. Join us for a discussion with King and Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry about whether or not we can save schools. The event will take place on Friday, February 24, 2017, at 4:00 PM in the Z. Smith Reynolds Library Auditorium, Room 404. A reception will follow. The even is free and open to the public. Please contact Dani Parker-Moore at parkerld@wfu.edu with questions

    Through an analysis of the print culture of late 19th- and early 20th-century railroad expansion in the U.S., this talk will reveal the methods by which corporations reframed the Southwest in terms of American patriotism and civic duty.

    On Wednesday, March 15, 2017 Wake Forest University will host its sixth annual student research symposium on gender and sexuality, featuring moderated sessions of scholarly and creative presentations by Wake Forest students. This event will showcase the exciting work that our undergraduates and graduate students are doing on gender-related issues across disciplines. This years theme is: Feminist Solidarities: Challenging Systems of Oppression and Privilege. The theme can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Systems of oppression are built around what are understood to be norms in our societies. A norm signifies what is normal, acceptable, and desirable in a society. It is also given a position of dominance, privilege and power over what is defined as non-dominant, abnormal and therefore marginal or not valuable. It is important to understand how all forms of oppression are linked and how they intersect to shape socio-political landscapes and personal identities. These intersecting systems of power and privilege include, but are not limited to, sexism, racism, classism, heterosexism, ageism, ableism, and colonialism. In order to confront and overturn systems of oppression we must become active also by nurturing relationships with others who share our feminist goals and simultaneously work across boundaries of difference to promote change. For this symposium, we invite presentations that address a vision of equality attentive to power differences, and engaged in constructive dialogue, resistance, and collective action. co-sponsored by the Department of Womens, Gender and Sexuality Studies and the School of Divinity at Wake Forest University

    2016 was the 100th anniversary of the founding of Cabaret Voltaire and DaDa. A burst of an idea in 1916, the art movement known as DaDa gave birth to a new 20th Century creativity. It spread through and beyond the arts and reverberated in cities across Europe, the Americas and beyond. DaDa was arguably the first instance of artists from a wide range of disciplines coming together to create art that was wildly imaginative, unapologetically experimental, and noisily provocative. The urgency of DaDa, emerging at the intersection of technological transformation and the violence and destruction of World War I, rendered the process of art making essential to this time of radical change. Lynn Book, Associate Teaching Professor in the Department of Theatre and Dance at Wake Forest University, will focus on parallels between then and now, proposing the art movements irrepressible potential remains alive with challenge written into its DaDa DNA. She will also discuss DADA! 100 Years of Edge Innovation, the university-wide, campus and community event that took place throughout ZSR Library last November, highlighting the creative research and engagement that brought together a host of experimentalists from Wake Forest and area partners.
