  1. Global Shakespeare Criticism Beyond the Nation State [Download]

    Title: Global Shakespeare Criticism Beyond the Nation State
    Author: Joubin, Alexa Alice
    Description: To move global Shakespeare studies beyond the more limiting scope of nation-state and cultural profiling, I would like to propose we consider a number of critical concepts as methodology. These concepts critique the limitations of cartographic imagination, and connect the performance site to spaces of knowledge production: (1) the site of performance and the myth of global Shakespeare; (2) diaspora and racial tensions; (3) art in post-national space; (4) the ethics of quoting Shakespeare and world cultures; and (5) the production and dissemination of knowledge through archives.

    Title: Top Textbooks at GW Libraries: Helping Students Access Expensive Course Materials
    Author: Dorinne Banks
    Description: GW Libraries’ Top Textbooks Program began as a shared vision of GW Student Association President, Peak Sen Chua and Dean of Libraries, Geneva Henry, to make course materials more affordable to GW students. The library’s OER Team launched the fall 2017 pilot program, acquiring 1-2 copies of required textbooks for a select group of undergraduate, high enrollment courses with traditionally expensive textbooks and placed them on course reserve in Gelman Library for use by all students. Voluntary Library Gift funds were used to purchase Top Textbooks. OER Team members, Dorinne Banks and Tolonda Henderson will present on the successes and challenges of piloting a textbooks on reserves initiative.

    Author: Meyers, Melanie J.
    Description: The attached is an address given by Melanie Meyers to the GW Libraries community on October 23, 2017. The talk was a summary of her work as the 2016-2017 Kiev Senior Research Fellow. This project approaches the Kiev collection as a means to explore the role of the scholar-librarian. Librarian engagement with collections facilitates both the use of rare materials and the crucial intellectual and emotional connections that can advance the services libraries offer for teaching, learning, and research.

    Description: This paper seeks to understand which factors make women vulnerable or averse to radicalization, and asks: do these factors differ from those that drive men into violent extremist groups? Understanding similarities and differences between men and women with regard to radicalization will enable policymakers to develop policies that effectively prevent and disrupt violent extremism.
