The Authentic Animal:  Reading and Talk with Dave Madden        Dave Madden Book Talk

UA assistant professor in the Creative Writing Department, Dave Madden,
will read from his new book, The Authentic Animal:  Inside the Odd and Obsessive World of Taxidermy (St. Martin's Press, 2011).  A reception and signing will take place before and after the talk.

Publisher's Weekly says that The Authentic Animal "muses with verve and wit on the relationships between human and animal, art and artifact, as well as on the collector's obsession."  Kirkus Reviews calls the book a "readable, sometimes chilling tour of an intriguing subculture."  And booklist sees "genuine curiosity, respect, depth, and wit," in the writing of "this remarkably entertaining and thought-provoking book."

Everyone is invited!

Photographer Shelia Pree Bright

Ms. Bright's lecture is in conjunction with the Paul Jones Collection of American Art.

Sheila Pree Bright, born 1967, is a fine art photographer based in Atlanta. Her large-scale works combine a wide-ranging knowledge of contemporary culture, while challenging perceptions of identity. Bright received national attention after winning the “Santa Fe Prize” from the Santa Fe Center for Photography in 2006 for her body of work The Suburbia Series. The project takes aim at the American media’s projection of the typical African-American community and depicts a more realistic and common ideology of African-American life.

"Stamping Out Hunger" -
Beat Auburn Beat Hunger Letter Sending Event
 
The Community Service Center and the West Alabama Food Bank are teaming up to host the annual food drive competition to fight hunger while competing against Auburn University. The Beat Auburn Beat Hunger Kick off festivities begin Monday, Oct. 10.

"Beat Auburn Beat Hunger is one of the oldest traditions and most unifying things on campus that allows students to give back to the community that is in such great need," said Charlotte Brown, CSC student director for hunger and homelessness.

"The West Alabama Food Bank helps the Tuscaloosa community, but it also helps the counties surrounding Tuscaloosa, as well," said Wahnee Sherman, director of the CSC. "This is a wonderful way for students to get involved in a very practical way. Students have been so great since the tornado; this is another way for them to continue what they've already done and to make an impact here in Tuscaloosa and the surrounding area."

Each year, the sponsoring groups try to implement new activities for students to get involved in. On Monday, there will be the Stamp Out Hunger letter-writing campaign in Gorgas Library Room 205 from 6 to 10 p.m. Participants can personalize letters and emails and send them to family members and friends. There will be refreshments and prizes for the student who sends the most letters and/or emails. All envelopes and stamps will be provided, along with the pre-made letter.

Donations can be made around campus, in the community and also via text message. For more information on BABH, visit http://beatauburnbeathunger.ua.edu .

"Beyond Archives and Illustrations:  New Directions in Digital History"
 
Lecture by Anne Rubin co-sponsored by the University of Alabama Libraries, the Summersell Center for the Study of the South and the College of Arts and Sciences.
 

Anne Rubin, a highly respected expert on the history of the Civil War, is associate professor and Historical Studies Graduate program director at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.  Her many publications include A Shattered Nation:  The Rise and Fall of the Confederacy:  1861-1868, a book for which she won the 2006 Avery O. Craven Award, awarded annually by the Organization of American Historians for the most original book on the Civil War or Reconstruction.
 
She also created (with Edward L. Ayers), The Valley of the Shadow:  Two Communities in the American Civil War.  This innovative web site and CDROM led to her becoming the first winner of the prestigious E-Lincoln Prize, which recognizes "the finest scholarly work on the era of the American Civil War" in new media.  This work also received the 2003 James Harvey Robinson Prize of the American Historical Association, which is awarded biennially for "the teaching aid that has made the most outstanding contribution to the teaching of history in any field."
 
You may explore The Valley of the Shadow web site at http:/ /valley.lib.virginia.edu/
 
Professor Rubin is currently at work on a study of the collective cultural memory of William T. Sherman's 1864 March through Georgia and the Carolina's, entitled Through the Heart of Dixie:  Sherman's March and America.
 
Everyone is welcomed to attend Professor Rubin's lecture.
