Author Reading | Everything Belongs to Us


Professor and author Yoojin Grace Wuertz discusses her book, Everything Belongs to Us.  "Two young women of vastly different means each struggle to find her own way during the darkest hours of South Korea’s “economic miracle” in a striking debut novel for readers of Anthony Marra and Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie" (Everything Belongs to Us). "Seoul, 1978. At South Korea’s top university, the nation’s best and brightest compete to join the professional elite of an authoritarian regime. Success could lead to a life of rarefied privilege and wealth; failure means being left irrevocably behind" (Everything Belongs to Us).  “The intertwined lives of South Korean university students provide intimacy to a rich and descriptive portrait of the country during the period of authoritarian industrialization in the late 1970s. Wuertz’s debut novel is a Gatsby-esque takedown, full of memorable characters.”—The New York Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice).

Discussion | Land Value Capture: Theory and Practice


Public infrastructure has long played an instrumental role in the growth of our cities and largely accounts for the observed increase in land values. And yet, our funding mechanisms have failed to tap into this vast source of publicly created wealth, allowing it to be pocketed by private landlords. In this 5-session course, Dr. Marty Rowland traces the theory of Land Value Capture back to the work of Henry George and discusses its potential for driving the rebirth of our cities. Henry George (1839 -1897) was an American political economist and journalist. His writing was immensely popular in the 19th century, and sparked several reform movements of the Progressive Era. His writings also inspired the economic philosophy known as Georgism, based on the belief that people should own the value they produce themselves, but that the economic value derived from land (including natural resources) should belong equally to all members of society. Instructor: Dr. Marty Rowland. Thursdays: 1/9, 1/16, 1/23, 1/30, 2/6.

Screening | Screening movies by an Oscar winning animator


Scottish-Canadian animator Norman McClaren created films unlike anyone had ever seen, reframing the language and techniques of abstract animation. His 60 films earned him over 200 international awards. Pablo Picasso called his Oscar-winning short “Neighbours,” “the greatest film ever made.” In addition to developing groundbreaking methods in animation drawn on film, visual music, pixilation, and more, he founded the first animation studio for Canada’s National Board of Film.  Filmmaker Donald McWilliams, who worked with McLaren at the NFB and directed the documentary Creative Process: Norman McLaren, has curated a selection of McClaren’s films from the Library’s archives that were produced between the 1940s and ‘70s. Michael Fukushima, Executive Producer of the English Animation Studio at the National Film Board of Canada, will present the screening.  Featuring Hen Hop (1943) Le Merle (1958) Ballet Adagio (1973) Canon (1964) Lines Horizontal (1960) Mosaic (1965) Spheres (1969) Pen Point Percussion (1949–1951) Blinkity Blank (1955) Rythmetic (1956) Pas de deux (1969)

Author Reading | After Coal: Stories of Survival in Appalachia and Wales


What happens when fossil fuels run out? How do communities and cultures survive? Central Appalachia and south Wales were built to extract coal, and faced with coal’s decline, both regions have experienced economic depression, labor unrest, and out-migration. After Coal focuses on coalfield residents who chose not to leave, but instead remained in their communities and worked to build a diverse and sustainable economy. It tells the story of four decades of exchange between two mining communities on opposite sides of the Atlantic, and profiles individuals and organizations that are undertaking the critical work of regeneration. The stories in this book are told through interviews and photographs collected during the making of After Coal, a documentary film produced by the Center for Appalachian Studies at Appalachian State University and directed by Tom Hansell. Considering resonances between Appalachia and Wales in the realms of labor, environment, and movements for social justice, the book approaches the transition from coal as an opportunity for marginalized people around the world to work toward safer and more egalitarian futures. Tom Hansell, an award-winning documentary filmmaker, is the author of After Coal: Stories of Survival in Appalachia and Wales, published by West Virginia University Press. It is a companion volume to his 2016 film of the same name. Hansell’s work has been broadcast on public television and screened at international film festivals. He began his career at the Appalshop media arts center, and he currently teaches at Appalachian State University.

Talk | The Science of Love


What is love? Turns out, it’s all in your head. Neuroscientist Bianca J. Marlin discusses her research on the strong emotional bonds that can exist between humans, like those between parents and children. Marlin’s work investigates the use of neurochemicals like oxytocin (the “love drug”) as a potential treatment to strengthen fragile and broken relationships. Bianca Marlin is a neuroscientist and postdoctoral researcher at Columbia University’s Zuckerman Institute. As postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Nobel Laureate Dr. Richard Axel, she investigates transgenerational epigenetic inheritance, or how trauma in parents affect the brain structure and sensory experience of their future offspring. During her graduate studies, in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Froemke, Dr. Marlin examined how the brain adapts to care for a newborn. Her findings uncovered a fundamental role of the neuromodulator oxytocin during the transition to motherhood.
